**Senior Secondary Course (Syllabus) Mathematics**

**RATIONALE**

The curriculum in Mathematics has been designed to cater to the specific needs of NIOS learners. The thrust is on the applicational aspects of mathematics and relating learning to the daily life and work situation of the learners. The course is modular in nature with – eight compulsory modules forming the core curriculum and four optional modules out of which the learner is to choose one optional module. An attempt has been made to reduce rigour and abstractness.

**OBJECTIVES**

The course aims at enabling learners to :

• become precise, exact and logical.

• acquire knowledge of mathematical terms, symbols, facts and formulae.

• develop an understanding of mathematical concepts.

• develop problem solving ability.

• acquire skills in applying the learning to situation including reading charts, tables, graphs etc.

• apply the above skills in solving problems related to Science, Commerce and daily life.

• develop a positive attitude towards Mathematics and its application.

**COURSE STRUCTURE**

The compulsory modules are :

1. Complex Numbers and Quadratic Equations

2. Determinants and Matrices

3. Permutations and Combinations

4. Sequences and Series

5. Trigonometry

6. Coordinate Geometry

7. Differential Calculus

8. Integral Calculus

The optional modules are :

9. Statistics and Probability

10. Vectors and Analytical Solid Geometry

11. Linear Programming
