Quadratic Equations: a. The standard form of a quadratic equation ax2+bx+c=0, (a ≠ 0), Solution of the quadratic equations (only real roots) by factorization, by completing the square and by using the quadratic formula, Relationship between discriminant and nature of roots. b. Situational problems based on quadratic equations related to daytoday activities to be incorporated.

3. Coordinate Geometry  Lines (In twodimensions) – Concept of coordinate geometry, graphs of linear equations, Distance formula, Section formula (internal division), Area of a triangle
4. Geometry: Triangles
Definitions, examples, and counterexamples of similar triangles.
Circles
Tangents to a circle motivated by chords drawn from points coming closer and closer to the point.
Constructions
5. Trigonometry
Introduction To Trigonometry: Trigonometric ratios of an acute angle of a rightangled triangle. Proof of their existence (well defined); motivate the ratios, whichever are defined at 0° and 90°. Values (with proofs) of the trigonometric ratios of 30°, 45°, and 60°, Relationships between the ratios.
Trigonometric Identities: Proof and applications of the identity sin2A + cos2A = 1, only simple identities to be given, Trigonometric ratios of complementary angles.
Heights and Distances: Simple and believable problems on heights and distances, Problems should not involve more than two right triangles. Angles of elevation/depression should be only 30°, 45°, and 60°.
6. Mensuration
Areas Related to Circles: Motivate the area of a circle; area of sectors and segments of a circle. Problems based on areas and perimeter/circumference of the abovesaid plane figures. (In calculating the area of a segment of a circle, problems should be restricted to the central angle of 60°, 90°, and 120° only. Plane figures involving triangles, simple quadrilateral, and circles should be taken).
