Revised: ICSE Class 10 Maths Syllabus 2024-25

The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (‍CISCE)  has made no changes in its ICSE Class 10 syllabus for the 2024-25 academic session. So the same applies to the Class 10 ICSE Maths Syllabus 204-2025 as well. All the details regarding the syllabus and the regulations are available on its official website. 

The overarching goals of designing the ICSE Board Class 10 Maths Syllabus by CISCE are to. help students acquire knowledge and understanding of the terms, concepts, symbols, processes, principles,  proofs, etc. of mathematics. It also aims to develop an understanding of mathematical concepts and their real-life application to further studies in mathematics and related disciplines along with developing skills to apply mathematical knowledge to solve real-life problems.

Examine the mathematical principles governing the rules and phenomena of physics. In mechanics, electromagnetism, and optics, ideas like algebra, trigonometry, and calculus are used. Reinforce mathematical principles in real-world scenarios by applying mathematical problem-solving approaches using ICSE Class 10 Physics Syllabus difficulties.

ICSE Class 10 Mathematics Syllabus 2024-2025

There will be one paper of two and a half hours duration carrying 80 marks and an Internal Assessment of 20 marks.

Total Marks: 100

Theory Paper: 80 Marks(2.5 Hours )

Internal Assessment: 20 Marks

The theory paper will be divided into two sections:  Section I (40 marks) and Section II (40 marks). Section I will consist of compulsory short answer questions while in Section II candidates will be required to answer four out of seven questions. The solution to a question may require the knowledge of more than one branch of the syllabus. 

Note: Certain questions may require the use of Mathematical tables (Logarithmic and Trigonometric

Two Assignments

ICSE Board Class 10 Maths Syllabus: Internal Assessment 

The minimum number of two assignments is prescribed by the teacher. Here are some suggested assignments by  CISCE mentioned in the syllabus: 

  • Comparative newspaper coverage of different items.  
  • Survey of various types of Bank accounts, and rates of interest offered.  
  • Planning a home budget.  
  • Survey your locality to study the mode of conveyance / Price of various essential commodities / favorite sports. 
  • Represent the data using a bar graph/histogram and estimate the mode.  To use a newspaper to study and report on shares and dividends.  
  • Set up a dropper with ink in it vertically at a height say 20 cm above a horizontally placed sheet of plain paper. Release one ink drop; observe the pattern, if any, on the paper. Vary the vertical distance and repeat. Discover any pattern of relationship between the vertical height and the ink drop observed. 
  • You are provided (or you construct a model) - three vertical sticks (the size of a pencil) stuck to a horizontal board. You should also have discs of varying sizes with holes (like a doughnut). Start with one disc; place it on (in) stick A. Transfer it to another stick (B or C); this is one move (m). Now try with two discs placed in A such that the large disc is below, and the smaller disc is above (number of discs = n=2 now). Now transfer them one at a time in B or C to obtain a similar situation (larger disc below). How many moves? Try with more discs (n = 1,2, 3, etc.) and generalize.
  • The board has some holes to hold marbles, red on one side and blue on the other. Start with one pair. Interchange the positions by making one move at a time. A marble can jump over another to fill the hole behind it. The move (m) equals 3. Try with 2 (n=2) and more. Find the relationship between n and m.
  • Take a square sheet of paper of side 10 cm. Four small squares are to be cut from the corners of the square sheet and then the paper is folded at the cuts to form an open box. What should be the size of the squares cut so that the volume of the open box is maximum?
  • Take an open box, four sets of marbles (ensuring that the marbles in each set are of the same size), and some water. By placing the marbles and water in the box, attempt to answer the question: do larger marbles or smaller marbles occupy more volume in a given space?  
  • An eccentric artist says that the best paintings have the same area as their perimeter (numerically). Let us not argue whether such sizes increase the viewer’s appreciation, but only try and find what sides (in integers only) a rectangle must have if its area and perimeter are to be equal (Note: there are only two such rectangles).
  • Find by constructing the center of a circle, using only a 60-30 set square and a pencil.
  • Various types of “cryptarithm”.

How To Prepare For  Mathematics Class 10 ICSE 

Scoring good marks in ICSE Class 10 Mathematics is easy if you have started your preparation early and have made a solid study plan. 

  • The first thing that you have to do is to understand the Class 10 ICSE Maths Syllabus: Understand the topics covered in the chapters and the weightage of marks. 
  • Now, gather all the necessary study materials, including textbooks, reference books, notes, and sample papers.
  • Create a study schedule by allocating sufficient time to cover each topic thoroughly. Make sure to include regular breaks to avoid burnout.
  • Focus on understanding the concepts rather than rote memorization. Practice solving problems to strengthen your understanding of each topic.
  • Solve previous years' question papers to familiarize yourself with the exam pattern and types of questions asked.

Remember consistency and practice are the keys to scoring good marks in the exam. Keep calm and keep practicing.
