Guidance on how to solve the problems. In essence it should allow candidates to probe, describe and explain a mathematical area of interest and communicate the findings using mathematical symbols, language and tools. It is expected that students would be able to master the specific objectives and related content after pursuing a course in Mathematics over five years of secondary schooling. Correspondence related to the syllabus should be addressed to: The Pro-Registrar Caribbean Examinations Council Caenwood Centre 37 Arnold Road, Kingston 5, Jamaica Telephone Number: +1 876 630-5200 Facsimile Number: +1 876 967-4972 E-mail Address: Website: www. Naturally, the content of either book is enriched by the materials and perspectives provided by the other one.

These are the only words that change in describing the performance for each grade. Sharing calculators is not permitted in the examination room. Reasoning This involves the correct selection of an appropriate method for complex problems or the correct interpretation of given information. I could really benefit from knowing what grade level I am at in math now. This course of study, which includes fundamentals of Pure and Applied Mathematics, caters to diverse interests enabling students to develop critical-thinking skills applicable to other subject areas. Private candidates must be entered through institutions recognized by the Council. Students should be able to: 6.

For those of you who are not sure what criterion referenced testing is,. This, people, is criterion-referenced testing. The task of revising mathematics examinations can be grim, so we have also broken down our test question by syllabus sections, so that you can manage the way you practice test questions based on areas of strength or weakness. One question will be set on Data Representation and Probability and the other question will be set on Kinematics. The Mathematics syllabus explains general and unifying concepts that facilitate the study of Mathematics as a coherent subject rather than as a set of unrelated topics.

Sequences and Series Students should be able to: 1. The mathematics syllabus is arranged in 8 sections consisting of specific objectives and related content. These are recall, method and reasoning. Revision is about dividing the content of a syllabus into manageable sections and spending time specifically revising those sections, so that, over a period of several weeks, you cover all of the syllabus content. No part of this publication may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system, or transmitted in any form, or by any means electronic, photocopying, recording or otherwise without prior permission of the author or publisher. Some of the underlying concepts of Mathematics will be explored to a level which fosters a deeper understanding and greater appreciation of Mathematics. Be honest with yourself and realistic in your expectations on studing.

Quadratics Students should be able to: 1. This note covers the following topics: Geometric Quantization and Representation Theory, Geometry of Numbers, Reductive Groups over Fields, Abelian Varieties, Fiber Bundles and Cobordism, Ergodic Theory, Complex Manifolds, Algebraic and Arithmetic Geometry, Riemanns Zeta Funcion, Complex Analysis on Riemann Surfaces, Lie Groups and Lie Algebras. A large number of exercises is provided, together with answers. Use of algorithms and the application of these algorithms to familiar problem situations. Additionally, the competencies and certification acquired upon completion of this course of study is comparable with the mathematics curricula of high schools world-wide. The Paper will be of 1 hour duration and will consist of two questions. Grade 7: Anything below 20% I figure if you're getting 85% and up on past papers then you're certainly heading for that 1! It is intended to help the students to grasp the fundamentals of mathematics and apply them in problem solving.

Your anxiety will be reduced and you will feel more and more in control of your destiny. The contents cover all the objectives in the syllabus, and reference to all the basic aspects of mathematics has been included where this is considered desirable. Inequalities Students should be able to: 1. The given topic s may be from any section or combination of different sections of the syllabus. On completing this course students will be able to make a smooth transition to higher levels of study in Mathematics, or move on to career choices where a deeper knowledge of the general concepts of Mathematics is required. The relationship between indices and logarithms. The above underscores the fact that in order to prepare effectively for examinations in mathematics, you have to place emphasis on studying information, using appropriate methods and practicing problems.

Then they will go to your schools, which will keep them for a day or two to collect data as well, before you finally receive them. Grade 4: 54%-40% similar to other grades' description. So I'm worried about Biology, Information Technology and Principles of Accounts. Features of each book in the series include: prior learning points; fully differentiated exercises to cater for a wide range of ability; activities and investigations to encourage mathematical thinking; summaries of the main points of each unit with questions to check understanding, so that students can test themselves; and regular revision exercises to help monitor progress. They are also suitable for less able pupils who are in the early stages of the secondary-school course. The contents cover all the objectives in the syllabus, and reference to all the basic aspects of mathematics has been included where this is considered desirable. No help or advice is permitted on the use or repair of calculators during the examination.

The two books, although originating from the same sources and having the same editor, emphasize different aspects of assessment in mathematics education and can be read independently of one another. Paper 02 2 hours and 40 minutes The Paper consists of ten compulsory structured type questions. Candidates, however, may make use of any symbol or nomenclature provided that such use is consistent and understandable in the given context. The given topic s may be from any section or combination of different sections of the syllabus. Measurement will be given in S I Units. Topics covered includes: Set Theory, Induction and Recursion on the Ordinals, Cardinal Arithmetic, Model Theory and Proof Theory, First-Order Logic Semantics, Formal Proofs, Elementary Submodels and Recursion Theory.

Grade 3: 69%-55% similar to other grades' description. Therefore, Mathematics is the essential tool to empower people with the knowledge, competencies and attitudes which are precursors for this dynamic world. This book is a step in this direction. The syllabus addresses the personal development and educational needs of Caribbean students by encapsulating a variety of skills integral to everyday life and prerequisites for entering environments of work and academia. It condenses and presents under one cover basic concepts from several different applied mathematics topics.
