`Home » SSS2 Scheme of Work » SSS2 Further Mathematics Scheme of Work`

Further Mathematics in Senior Secondary School 2 (SSS2) is a higher level of math for students who are good at and interested in the subject. In SSS2, this course covers more complex and challenging topics than regular math. It builds on what students have previously learned, helping them understand more difficult math ideas and improve their problem-solving skills.

The Lagos State Unified Scheme of Work for Further Mathematics in SS2 includes a wide range of topics to give students a strong and thorough math education. Important areas covered are advanced algebra, calculus, trigonometry, and statistics. Each topic is chosen to balance theory with practical use. The unified scheme of work also focuses on problem-solving and critical thinking, encouraging students to tackle math problems with creativity and logic.

Overall, Further Mathematics in SS2 aims to develop a strong appreciation for math and its uses. Learning this subject with the Lagos State curriculum helps students succeed academically preparing them for the analytical challenges of the modern job market, making it an essential part of their education.

In senior secondary school 2, 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%.
