Mathematics is another core subject in the Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme. Since the curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships, secondary students are encouraged to apply their mathematical knowledge and thus develop a holistic understanding of the subject.
The Cambridge Secondary 1 Mathematics curriculum framework continues the journey from the Cambridge Primary Mathematics framework and provides a solid foundation upon which the later stages of education can be built.
The first five content areas are all underpinned by Problem solving, which provides a structure for the application of mathematical skills. Mental strategies are also a key part of the Number content. This curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject.
For Cambridge Secondary 1 Maths, the curriculum is presented in six content areas or ‘strands’.
