CBSE Syllabus Class 12 Mathematics

The Syllabus in the subject of Mathematics has undergone changes from time to time in accordance with growth of the subject and emerging needs of the society. Senior Secondary stage is a launching stage from where the students go either for higher academic education in Mathematics or for professional courses like Engineering, Physical and Biological science, Commerce or Computer Applications. The present revised 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. Motivating the topics from real life situations and other subject areas, greater emphasis has been laid on application of various concepts.

Objectives

The broad objectives of teaching Mathematics at senior school stage intend to help the students:

  • to acquire knowledge and critical understanding, particularly by way of motivation and visualization, of basic concepts, terms, principles, symbols and mastery of underlying processes and skills.
  • to feel the flow of reasons while proving a result or solving a problem.
  • to apply the knowledge and skills acquired to solve problems and wherever possible, by more than one method.
  • to develop positive attitude to think, analyze and articulate logically.
  • to develop interest in the subject by participating in related competitions.
  • to acquaint students with different aspects of Mathematics used in daily life.
  • to develop an interest in students to study Mathematics as a discipline.
  • to develop awareness of the need for national integration, protection of environment, observance of small family norms, removal of social barriers, elimination of gender biases.
  • to develop reverence and respect towards great Mathematicians for their contributions to the field of Mathematics.

Conduct of Periodic Tests:

Periodic Test is a Pen and Paper assessment which is to be conducted by the subject teacher. The format of periodic test must have questions items with a balance mix, such as, very short answer (VSA), short answer (SA) and long answer (LA) to effectively assess the knowledge, understanding, application, skills, analysis, evaluation and synthesis. The subject teacher will have the liberty of incorporating any other types of questions too. The modalities of the PT are as follows:

  1. Mode: The periodic test is to be taken in the form of pen-paper test.
  2. Schedule: In the entire Academic Year, three Periodic Tests in each subject may be conducted as follows:
TestPre Mid-TermMid-Term(PT-II)Post Mid-Term (PT_III)
Tentative MonthJuly-AugustNovemberDecember-January

This is only a suggestive schedule and schools may conduct periodic tests as per their convenience. The winter bound schools would develop their own schedule with similar time gaps between two consecutive tests.

  1. Average of Marks: Once schools complete the conduct of all the three periodic tests, they will convert the weightage of each of the three tests into ten marks each for identifying best two tests. The best two will be taken into consideration and the average of the two shall be taken as the final marks for PT.
  2. The school will ensure simple documentation to keep a record of performance
  3. Sharing of Feedback/Performance: The students’ achievement in each test must be shared with the students and their parents to give them an overview of the level of learning that has taken place during different periods. Feedback will help parents formulate interventions (conducive ambience, support materials, motivation and morale-boosting) to further enhance learning. A teacher, while sharing the feedback with student or parent, should be empathetic, non- judgmental and motivating. It is recommended that the teacher share best examples/performances with the class to motivate all learners.

Assessment of Activity Work:

Throughout the year any 10 activities shall be performed by the student from the activities given in the NCERT Laboratory Manual for the respective class ( XI or XII) which is available on the link: http://www.ncert.nic.in/exemplar/labmanuals.html A record of the same may be kept by the student. An year-end test on the activity may be conducted at the School Level.
The weightage are as under:
