1. POLYNOMIALS 

Definition of a polynomial in one variable, with examples and counter examples. Coefficients of a polynomial, terms of a polynomial and zero polynomial. Degree of a polynomial. Constant, linear, quadratic and cubic polynomials. Monomials, binomials, trinomials. Factors and multiples. Zeros of a polynomial. Motivate and State the Remainder Theorem with examples. Statement and proof of the Factor Theorem.

Factorization of ax2 + bx + c, a ≠ 0 where a, b and c are real numbers, and of cubic polynomials using the Factor Theorem.

Recall of algebraic expressions and identities. Verification of identities:

(x + y + z)2 = x2 + y2 + z2 + 2xy + 2yz + 2zx

(x ± y)3 = x3 ± y3 ± 3xy (x ± y)

x³ ± y³ = (x ± y) (x² ± xy + y²)

x3 + y3 + z3 - 3xyz = (x + y + z) (x2 + y2 + z2 - xy - yz - zx) and their use in factorization of polynomials.

Unit: Geometry

2. QUADRILATERALS

  1. (Prove) The diagonal divides a parallelogram into two congruent triangles.
  2. (Motivate) In a parallelogram opposite sides are equal, and conversely.
  3. (Motivate) In a parallelogram opposite angles are equal, and conversely.
  4. (Motivate) A quadrilateral is a parallelogram if a pair of its opposite sides is parallel and equal.
  5. (Motivate) In a parallelogram, the diagonals bisect each other and conversely.
  6. (Motivate) In a triangle, the line segment joining the mid points of any two sides is parallel to the third side and (motivate) its converse.

3. CIRCLES

Through examples, arrive at definitions of circle related concepts, radius, circumference, diameter, chord, arc, secant, sector, segment subtended angle.

  1. (Prove) Equal chords of a circle subtend equal angles at the center and (motivate) its converse.
  2. (Motivate) The perpendicular from the center of a circle to a chord bisects the chord and conversely, the line drawn through the center of a circle to bisect a chord is perpendicular to the chord.
  3. (Motivate) Equal chords of a circle (or of congruent circles) are equidistant from the center (or their respective centers) and conversely.
  4. (Motivate) The angle subtended by an arc at the center is double the angle subtended by it at any point on the remaining part of the circle.
  5. (Motivate) Angles in the same segment of a circle are equal.
  6. (Motivate) The sum of either of the pair of the opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral is 180° and its converse.

4. CONSTRUCTIONS

  1. Construction of bisectors of line segments and angles of measure 60°, 90°, 45° etc., equilateral triangles.
  2. Construction of a triangle given its base, sum/difference of the other two sides and one base angle.

Unit: Mensuration

5. SURFACE AREAS AND VOLUMES

Surface areas and volumes of cubes, cuboids, spheres (including hemispheres) and right circular cylinders/cones.

Unit: Statistics and Probability

6. PROBABILITY

History, Repeated experiments and observed frequency approach to probability.

Focus is on empirical probability. (A large amount of time to be devoted to group and to individual activities to motivate the concept; the experiments to be drawn from real - life situations, and from examples used in the chapter on statistics).
