CBSE Class 10 Syllabus Maths
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is one of the most prestigious and preferred educational boards in India. It aims to provide holistic and healthy education to all its learners so that students can get adequate space to develop mentally and physically. CBSE is known for its comprehensive syllabus and well structured exam pattern which helps students to get a detailed idea about the entire curriculum. There are around 20,102 schools under the board which follow the NCERT curriculum.
The CBSE class 10 board exam is undoubtedly the first important exam in an individual’s life because this phase of life shapes the future of the students for their next successive years. The CBSE class 10 board exam is the first nationalised external exam that the students undertake and hence gives a nightmare to many students appearing for the exam.
The subjects are designed very strategically and help the students to get influenced by the lessons and knowledge imparted to them. The subjects, especially science and maths require the students to get completely immersed in them and enjoy learning along with gathering knowledge.

UNIT-ALGEBRA
2. POLYNOMIALS
Zeroes of a polynomial. Relationship between zeroes and coefficients of quadratic polynomials only.
3. PAIR OF LINEAR EQUATIONS IN TWO VARIABLES
Pair of linear equations in two variables and graphical method of their solution, consistency/inconsistency. Algebraic conditions for a number of solutions. Solution of a pair of linear equations in two variables algebraically – by substitution and by elimination. Simple situational problems. Simple problems on equations are reducible to linear equations.
UNIT-COORDINATE GEOMETRY

LINES (In two dimensions)
Review: Concepts of coordinate geometry, graphs of linear equations. Distance formula. Section formula (internal division)
UNIT-GEOMETRY
5. TRIANGLES
Definitions, examples, counterexamples of similar triangles.
(Prove) If a line is drawn parallel to one side of a triangle to intersect the other two sides in distinct points, the other two sides are divided in the same ratio.
(Motivate) If a line divides two sides of a triangle in the same ratio, the line is parallel to the third side.
(Motivate) If in two triangles, the corresponding angles are equal, their corresponding sides are proportional, and the triangles are similar.
(Motivate) If the corresponding sides of two triangles are proportional, their corresponding angles are equal, and the two triangles are similar.
(Motivate) If one angle of a triangle is equal to one angle of another triangle and the sides including these angles are proportional, the two triangles are similar.
(Motivate) If a perpendicular is drawn from the vertex of the right angle of a right triangle to the hypotenuse, the triangles on each side of the perpendicular are similar to the whole triangle and to each other.
(Motivate) The ratio of the areas of two similar triangles is equal to the ratio of the squares of their corresponding sides.
(Prove) In a right triangle, the square on the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares on the other two sides.
(Motivate) In a triangle, if the square on one side is equal to the sum of the squares on the other two sides, the angle opposite to the first side is a right angle.
UNIT- TRIGONOMETRY
6. INTRODUCTION TO TRIGONOMETRY
Trigonometric ratios of an acute angle of a right-angled triangle. Proof of their existence (well defined). Values of the trigonometric ratios of $30^{circ}, 45^{circ}$ and $60^{circ} .$ Relationships between the ratios.

7. AREAS RELATED TO CIRCLES
Motivate the area of a circle, area of sectors, and segments of a circle. Problems based on areas and perimeter/circumference of the above-said plane figures. (In calculating the area of a segment of a circle, problems should be restricted to the central angle of $60^{circ}$ and $90^{circ}$ only. Plane figures involving triangles, simple quadrilaterals, and circles should be taken.)
