Mathematics (Algebra and Geometry)
Mathematics is the language of all sciences. The subject at the secondary level has great importance in a progressive country like India as it develops various living skill. It is important to note that the subject itself has a separate identity in the life of a man. The challenges due to the tremendous growth in the population, globalization, pollution, competition between countries, natural disasters emphasise the need to develop the curriculum in Mathematics at the secondary level. Knowledge of the subject and skills acquired while learning Mathematics develop the ability to execute, manage, plan with precision. This could be effectively inculcated at the secondary level and is hence a decisive factor in according Mathematics an important place in the scheme of studies of secondary education in the state of Maharashtra.
Mathematics at the primary stage of education develops the skill of quantification of experiences in learners. It helps to develop decision making which is applicable to real life situations in future. In addition, it helps enormously in the development of other disciplines which involves analysis, reasoning and qualification of ideas.
The study of Mathematics has to be graded at different levels viz. primary, higher primary and secondary, higher secondary levels. At the primary stage the focus is on understanding of various concept and fundamentals and on developing the basic skills of calculation. At the secondary level the emphasis is on the capacity of students to apply mathematics in solving problems. Secondly a systematic study of Mathematics as a discipline has to be started and continued for the use of algebraic methods, arithmetical skills. A study of the different applications of mathematics in various fielda like science, geography, economics, social science etc. gives the student a comprehensive and global prespective.
In the beginning of the 21st century, man has developed new disciplines like Information Technology, Genetic Engineering, Biotechnology, etc. on the basis of Mathematics. Thus a supplementary study of Mathematics is necessary to develop in students the skills essential for these new disciplines. We are confident that enriching these skills at the secondary level, will meet the basic and allied needs and fulfil the requirements in future. So, it has become necessary for every student to study and to develop a modicum of mathematical skills at the secondary level.

Science And Technology
The National curriculum Framework 2005 (NCF 2005) is one of the most comprehensive documents published in the last decade. It suggests radical changes in curricula for the country and offers an excellent framework for preparing need based curricula. While revising the syllabi for Science and Technology, the position paper on science ( NCF 2005) has selected ‘’Learning without burden” as the main theme. It also recommends a pedagogy which is hand-on and inquiry based.
The present syllabus of Science and Technology for STD IX and X is based on the principles and themes suggested in NCF 2005. The Themes are cross – disciplinary in nature : Food, Materials, The world of the Living, How things work, Moving things; people and ideas; Natural phenomena and Natural Resources. Some themes have been merged to consolidate content.
As suggested in NCF 2005, unnecessary focus on enumeration has been avoided. More importance has been given to the processes in science rather than focusing on only factual information.
Since the themes are inter-linked to each other, the entire syllabus has been integrated into one paper. This will facilitate better understanding of the subject across disciplinary boundaries and at the same time expose students to many topics in Biology, physics and Chemistry.
The Objectives are :
- To enable the students to ‘’Learn without Burden”.
- To expose the students to a “hand-on way of learning science.
- To correlate scientific principles to the student’s experience.
- To involve students in exploring topics through discussion and activity.
