# Grade 10 Maths Exam Revision Guide and Study Modules

The Lower Secondary School Mathematics Syllabus and Teachers’ Guides are for teachers to plan their teaching programs. They can do that easily because they are trained and know what to do. For students, it can be daunting. The Grade 10 Maths Exam Revision Guide s(download editable MS word file, link below) is to make it easy for students to know what they are learning. The guide is a list of the mathematics topics students study in Grades 9 and 10.

## Grades 9 and 10 Math Revision Modules/Topics

It is perhaps important to note that the cores units and topics in this Grade 10 Maths revision guide are taken from the Outcome-Based Education school syllabus for lower secondary school. As mentioned earlier, the students, parents/guardians will have difficulty trying to understand the syllabus. And know the ‘exact’ topics and units that the children learn over the course of two years, Grades 9 -10.

That is why we list the core contents in the Grade 10 Mathematics Revision Guide to make it understandable and put in perspective the topics that are taught in Grades 9 and 10.

## Grade 10 Maths Exam Revision Guide

Covering the content units is fundamental to students achieving good marks in Grade 10 Mathematics assessments and end-of-the-year examinations. Here are the key reasonings about the Grade 10 Mathematics Study Guide you should know before downloading the guide:

• The outline is based on the 2005 (published) Grade 10 Syllabus under the OBE curriculum.
• The teaching and learning outline is the list of Mathematics topics. It forms the structure that supports teaching (TEACHERS), learning (STUDENTS), Assessments (SCHOOL-BASED) and Examinations (NATIONWIDE ASSESSMENTS).
• It is the ‘skeletal’ structure, and therefore new and experienced Maths teachers at Grades 9 and 10 levels should cover those topics in depth.
• Teaching the content well at Grades 9 & 10 levels closes the ‘GAP’ and paves way for students to master senior school mathematics with ease.
• Covering the content units is fundamental to students achieving good marks in Grade 10 Mathematics assessments and end-of-the-year Mathematics examination.
