Mathematical skills are demanded in almost all careers nowadays. It is very important to study mathematics as it enhances logical and analytical abilities of the students.It opens the door for the students to various domains and as it is a practical subject its applications are extensively applied in real life applications as well.

UP Board Class 10 syllabus is a detailed set of content that covers all the topics taught in previous classes in a deeper way, which also makes it more extensive and tougher to cover for some students. The first step for any student to prepare for UP Board exams is to have a clear understanding of the syllabus.

In this page, we have provided direct and free access to the **Reduced Class 10 Maths Paper Syllabus PDF** for the 2022-23 session.

- Periods Standard form of a quadratic equation ax2 + bx + c = 0, (a ≠ 0). Solutions of quadratic equations (only real roots) by factorization, and by using quadratic formulas.
- Relationship between discriminant and nature of roots. Situational problems based on quadratic equations related to day to day activities to be incorporated.

**5. Arithmetic Progression**

- Motivation for studying Arithmetic Progression Derivation of the nth term and sum of the first n terms of A.P. and their application in solving daily life problems.

**6. Coordinate Geometry**

- Review: Concepts of coordinate geometry, graphs of linear equations. Distance formula. Section formula (internal division).

**7. Triangles**

- Definitions, examples, counter examples of similar triangles.
- If a line is drawn parallel to one side of a triangle to intersect the other two sides in distinct points, the other two sides are divided in the same ratio.
- If a line divides two sides of a triangle in the same ratio, the line is parallel to the third side.
- If in two triangles, the corresponding angles are equal, their corresponding sides are proportional and the triangles are similar.
- If the corresponding sides of two triangles are proportional, their corresponding angles are equal and the two triangles are similar.
- If one angle of a triangle is equal to one angle of another triangle and the sides including these angles are proportional, the two triangles are similar.
