# Higher Secondary Mathematics Lab Manual, Guidelines, Model Question Paper

The syllabus for the Higher Secondary Mathematics has been revised by including practical. There would be practical periods every week along with practical exam in the end of the year like other Science subjects. Mathematics practical will become a reality from the academic year 2019-20 from first year(Plus One) classes.

It has been recommended early by the Curriculum Sub Committee to install IT and Mathematics labs and to conduct practicals. The recommendations, approaching document prepared by the SCERT and an order recognized by the government have been published. It has been directed to allot two continuous periods each week for Maths practical. A minimum of 8 and 16 lab work should be conducted for Plus One and Plus Two students respectively each year. The practical exam would be of 2 hours duration with questions for 40 marks. Accordingly, the valuation system that prevails now may change.

The order states that there is no need to install labs for Mathematics separately. Instead IT labs can be used. To make arrangements in lab in all schools, Hi-tech School project, Plan fund, self fund, people fund etc can be used. At present, other Science subjects have practical exam and lab activity is part of valuation.

The entire free softwares required for this like, Geogebra, Python, Libre office, Samagra Portal would be available free of cost by the Kerala Infrastructure and Technology for Education (KITE).

Each lab consists of 2 or 3 Activities and some additional activities. Additional Activities are optional.

Step by step explanation is given in the manual for each Activity.

Separate markings are given for those steps which are to be written in the observation book.

Each student has to keep an observation book, which is to be examined and rectified by the teacher.

An online platform is also set ready for recording the findings and inferences of the student.

First Year(Plus One) | 60 | 20 | - |

Second Year(Plus Two) | 60 | 20 | 40 (Lab Activities: 32,Viva:4,Record Work:4) |

It has been aimed to transact all subjects with the help of educational technology. KITE would make arrangements for excellent softwares for this and to impart training to all teachers. Scheme for Mathematics lab, model activities etc would be updated here as and when it is made available.

Five years back a team suggested this project with 20 practical works.The SCERT faculty rejected.

ReplyDeletePlease take necessary action to provide teachers training for unaided school teachers. Because the students from govt, aided, and unaided have equal right to learn uniform methods. Than you

ReplyDeletewhat about +2 students who write class 11 maths exam for 80

ReplyDeleteAny change in syllabus?

ReplyDeletePracticalinte ഒരു ആവശ്യവും ഇല്ല. ഇപ്പൊ തന്നെ 2 text ആണ് പഠിക്കാൻ ഉള്ളത്. ഇത് overload ആരിക്കും. മാത്രമല്ല 60 മാർക്കിന് എന്ത് ചോദ്യം ഇടാൻ ആണ് ?

ReplyDeleteGeoGebra ഒരു പേപ്പർ കൂടി സിലബസ്സിൽ ചേർത്താൽ പോരെ.വെറുതെ എന്തിനാ maths ന്റെ കൂടെ ഇത് കൊണ്ടുവന്നത്?.ഈ സബ്ജക്ട് നശിപ്പിക്കാനാണോ.ഇപ്പോൾ തന്നെ സിലബസ് മോശം ആണ്.Valuation നും മോശം.ഒന്നും അറിയാത്ത കുറെ തലമുറയെ പടച്ചു വിടുന്നു.

DeletePlease give the lab manual
