About SSS3 Further Mathematics Scheme of Work

Further Mathematics at the SSS3 level is an advanced course that builds on basic math. It covers topics like advanced algebra, calculus, statistics, and mechanics, which are crucial for students interested in subjects like engineering, physics, economics, and math itself.

Studying Further Mathematics using the Lagos state unified scheme of work is very important for the WASSCE exam. It helps students stand out in the WASSCE and prepares them well for higher education in STEM fields, both in Nigeria and internationally. Universities and employers value candidates who have a good grasp of Further Mathematics because it shows strong analytical skills and problem-solving abilities.

Success in Further Mathematics also boosts students’ chances of getting scholarships and gaining admission to top universities. It not only prepares them for more challenging math in college but also teaches them how to think critically and solve complex problems, which are essential skills for many careers.

Assessment Guide

SSS3 students in Nigeria are assessed in Further Mathematics through continuous assessments and the WASSCE. Continuous assessments include class tests, assignments, oral presentations, projects, and class participation. The WASSCE consists of multiple-choice questions and essays,. These assessments evaluate a range of skills, ensuring holistic evaluation, skill development, preparation for higher education and careers, and identifying areas for improvement.
