General Comments

Mathematics is a subject in which children take a lot of interest from the primary classes and with growing demand of innovations in teaching techniques worldwide, new ways of teaching Mathematical concepts are implemented to avoid restricting Mathematics to a rote learning subject.

The Mathematics syllabus of C and D forms is designed and taught in such a way that

  • It strengthens the understanding of concepts already studied by the students up to Grade 6.
  • It develops the interest of students in studying Mathematics as a subject and motivates them to think independently, approach any problem with a logical reasoning, frame a method to simplify the problem, obtain a desired result, analyze and cross-check the result obtained.
  • It enables students to correlate their knowledge of different topics and thus come to the conclusion that they have to combine the understanding of these topics to solve a high order problem.
  • It enables students to understand the relation between Mathematics and its importance in the modern world.
  • It also creates a fun-loving approach to the subject and encourages students to pursue it at higher level.
