“To not know math is a severe limitation to understanding the world.” — Richard P. Feynman
Maths is a course necessary for all students at least up to the secondary school level. Maths help students in their day to day lives.
SSC Mathematics in class 10th is designed in such a way that it helps those students who wish to further pursue Mathematics in higher seondary level and also build a healthy base of Maths for those who would not pursue it any further.
