Dear Students and Parents,

Please find the first term assessment syllabus and details below:

 Grade 9 Criteria-wise units Criteria Units to be assessed Criterion A: Knowing and Understanding Unit 1 – How many forms has a quadratic? Unit 2 – What are chances? Unit 3 – Mathematically speaking Criterion B: Investigating patterns Unit 2 –  What are chances? Criterion C: Communicating Unit 2 – What are chances? Unit 3 – Mathematically speaking Criterion D: Applying mathematics in the real-life contexts Unit 2 – What are chances? Unit 3 – Mathematically speaking

Unit wise topic list:

Unit 1 – How many forms has a quadratic?

• Different methods of solving Quadratic Equation
• Key features of Quadratic Function
• Different forms of Quadratic Function
• Finding equations from a graph.
• Finding equations from given points

Unit 2 – What are chances?

• Probability scale
• Sample space and
• Theoretical probability
• Practical probability
• Conditional Probability
• Fundamental counting principle – AND, OR and Complement.
• Different types of events – Independent and dependent events, Mutually exclusive events, Complementary events
• Expectations
• Relative frequency

Unit 3 – Mathematically speaking

• Sets.
• Different representation of sets.
• Set operations.
• Venn Diagrams, its operations and shading.
• Algebra of sets.
• Complex real life problems using sets.

Assessment Details:

• Paper will consist of short, medium and long response questions.
• The assessment will be divided into 2 components

(i) Component 1: On-Screen assessment to assess Criteria A & B – 60 minutes (Duration will be 90 minutes- to                                        cater to any technical issues that may arise)

(ii) Component 2: Pen and Paper assessment to assess Criteria C & D – 60 minutes

• Questions will be asked based on the Criteria of individual unit assessed during Summative Assessments. Eg: If a Unit-X has catered to learning objective A- strand (i), (ii) and objective B-strand (i) only, then the questions from this unit will only be asked in Criteria A and B.
• All the resources shared on Curricle (subject resource sheet and Central presentations), Google Classroom as well as the worksheets provided (online or in hard copy) will be considered as a part of the syllabus and will be sufficient to prepare for the assessment.

Important notes for component 1 (on-screen assessment):

• Fully charged Chromebook will be required for component 1 paper along with your personal stationery and earphones. In case your Chromebook is given for repair, bring a receipt for the same.
• Rough papers will be given if needed for rough work. These will not be taken as submissions.

Important notes for component 2 (pen and paper assessment):

• Calculators will not be allowed.
• The entire paper is to be written in the space provided in the question paper booklet. Neither additional supplementary will be provided nor any extra paper will be considered as a part of your solution.
• All the instructions will be available on the cover page of the question paper booklet. Please read these instructions before attempting the paper.
• Sharing of any resource will not be allowed.
• You need to carry your personal stationery.

In case of any query/concern, please feel free to approach any of the Grade – 9 Mathematics educator.

Thanks and regards,
