ICSE Class 9 Maths Syllabus


In class 9, the ICSE students are taught some of the most important and fundamental mathematics topics. The maths topics in ICSE class 9 are not only important for the exam but are also crucial to understand higher level concepts later. Even in most competitive exams, questions from class 9 topics are included.’

So, it is extremely important for a student to have a thorough understanding of the concepts and thereby have a strong foundation in the subject. Here, the detailed ICSE syllabus for class 9 maths is provided for the students to acquaint them with the topics that CISCE has included in the syllabus.
