Mathematics & Statistics (40)
(For Arts and Science)
Std. XI & XII

Introduction :
Mathematics is the language of all sciences and is perhaps the only subject which merits this distinction. Mathematics is the backbone of all sciences and it is an inseparable part of human life.

Higher Secondary is a launching stage from where students would go to either for academic education in Mathematics or professional courses like Engineering and Computer Technology, Physical and Biological Sciences. Hence to fulfil the needs of students, it is utmost important to make the study of Mathematics more meaningful by acquainting the student with many branches of mathematics.

This will help them in developing Mathematical tools to be used in the professional education. Apart from motivating topics from real life situations and other subject areas, major thrust is also on application of various concepts.

The proposed syllabus has been designed in accordance with National Curriculum Framework 2005 and as per guidelines given in Focus Group on Teaching of Mathematics 2005 which is to meet the emerging needs of all categories of students.

Objectives :
To enable the students
1) to acquire knowledge and critical understanding, particularly by way of motivation and visualization of basic concepts, terms, principles, symbols and mastering the underlying processes and skills.

2) to apply the knowledge and skills in Mathematics and related problems from other subjects, by more than one method.
3) to develop positive attitude to think, analyze and articulate logically.
4) to develop interest in Mathematics by participating in various related competitions and self-learning.
5) to acquaint students with different aspects of Mathematics used in real life.
6) to develop an interest in students to study Mathematics as a discipline.
7) to develop awareness of the need for national integration, protection of an environment, removal of social barriers, elimination of sex biases and observance of small family norm.
8) to develop reverence and respect towards great mathematicians for their contribution to the field of Mathematics.
9) to develop interest in the subject by participating in related competitions.
