## About SS2 Mathematics Scheme of Work

In Senior Secondary School 2 (SSS2), Mathematics equips students with the skills to tackle real-life problems. At this level, learners explore more complex mathematical concepts, building on what they have previously learned in SSS1.

The Lagos state unified scheme of work for Mathematics covers advanced areas such as algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, and statistics. These topics improve analytical and problem-solving capabilities and prepare students for further education and diverse career opportunities.

Studying Mathematics in SSS2 is crucial for building a foundation for advanced studies, enhancing problem-solving and critical thinking skills, and applying knowledge in real life. It prepares students for standardized tests and diverse career opportunities and also fosters perseverance and discipline. Mastery in Mathematics is essential for academic success and informed decision-making in everyday life.

## Achievement Standards

At the end of the SSS2 session, students can;

- Apply the use of binary system into day-to-day activities;
- Apply number base system to computer;
- Illustrate the application of modular arithmetic in daily life;
- Apply the laws of indices to solve problems involving negative, zero, and fractional indices;
- Demonstrate the application of variation in real life;
- Create a group to explain terms under basic concepts of sets;
- Calculate values that are required using a Venn diagram in daily activities;
- Use geometric circle knowledge to construct a football field, post, and pitch;
- Describe the sound waves and light waves through trigonometric ratios;
- Apply trigonometric ratios to solve life problems, problems involving angles of elevation, and learning problems.

## Assessment Guide

In SS2, mathematics is assessed through written exams, quizzes, homework, projects, class participation, ongoing evaluations, and in-depth investigations. These varied methods evaluate students’ comprehension, problem-solving abilities, and practical application of concepts, ensuring an all-round assessment of their mathematical skills.

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%.
