About SS1 Further Mathematics Scheme of Work

Further Mathematics is a subject that opens the doors to deeper and more complex mathematical concepts beyond what students encounter in basic Mathematics. It is designed to challenge and expand students’ mathematical horizons, and It covers a range of topics including algebra, calculus, vectors, trigonometry, and statistics. These areas are essential for success in disciplines such as engineering, physical sciences, economics, and computer science.

The Lagos state unified scheme of work in Further Mathematics for senior secondary school 1  is structured to build on the foundational knowledge students have acquired in junior secondary school by gradually introducing more sophisticated concepts and techniques. This progressive approach ensures that students develop a solid understanding of each topic before moving on to more complex ones.

Furthermore, this subject prepares students for national examinations such as WAEC and NECO, providing them with a competitive edge in both academics and future career prospects. It also paves the way for those aspiring to pursue higher education in fields that require strong mathematical proficiency.

Assessment Guide

In senior secondary school 1, students are assessed in Further Mathematics based on the school’s prerogative. However, typically, they are evaluated through tests or quizzes (Continuous Assessment Tests) and end-of-term exams.

Grading follows a scale from A to F, with A representing excellent performance, typically scoring around 70% or 80%, and F indicating failure, usually below 50% or 45%.
