Class 9 Karnataka State Board Latest Science Syllabus (2018 -19)

Syllabus mainly contains the information about the subject. Typically includes the information like Topics covered, Structure, assignments, activities, exercises etc.. A syllabus says how much time should be spent on what topics, How important the topics are! How should we study so that we can cover entire textbook without missing any topics. In case we are referring to any third party books for extra information syllabus helps us to know how deep understanding is sufficient from examination point of view! In short they are the reference frame for any studies.

Class 9 syllabus is prescribed by Karnataka Secondary Education and Examination Board popularly known as KSEEB. Board contains a committee of experts, they carefully choose the topics of science in such a way that studying them is not only for scoring good marks in the final examination but also for understanding higher grade science.

Students generally get interest in science because it explains infinite physical phenomenons occurring all the time in and around us. For example : how things are formed? How are the functioning? What is governing them? How complex things evolve over time from a simple things? A slow and study approach in finding answers to these questions will help a student for better realisation of science.

Class 9 science students study definitions of various topics, various physical laws, derivations, numericals, analytics etc… Syllabus mainly comprises of topics like states of matter, atoms and molecules, the fundamental units of life ,tissues and its types, Diversity in living organisms, motion, gravitation, laws of motion, etc…
