The Mathematics syllabus explains general and unifying concepts that facilitate the study of Mathematics as a coherent subject rather than as a set of unrelated topics.

The syllabus seeks to provide for the needs of specific mathematical techniques in the future careers of students, for example, in agriculture and in commercial and technical fields. By the end of the normal secondary school course, students should appreciate that the various branches of Mathematics are not rigidly segregated and that the approach to the solution of any problem is not necessarily unique.

The syllabus is arranged in ten sections:

Section 1 Computation
Section 2 Number Theory
Section 3 Consumer Arithmetic
Section 4 Sets
Section 5 Measurement
Section 6 Statistics
Section 7 Algebra
Section 8 Relations, Functions and Graphs
Section 9 Geometry and Trigonometry
Section 10 Vectors and Matrices
