Madhya Pradesh Board Class 12th Maths Syllabus 2020-2021

Higher mathematics is a fundamental discipline that finds application in various other Science subjects. Therefore, Madhya Pradesh Board Class 12th Maths Syllabus is designed to include all the topics such as Differential and Integral Calculus to equip the students to face the rigours of higher education. Topics such as Linear Programming and Mathematical Modelling prepares the students for Computer Science and Electronics Engineering courses.

A thorough understanding of the syllabus goes a long way in ensuring the right preparations for the HSC board exams. Students can also refer to the MP board 2020 sample paper along with the syllabus to get an idea about the exam pattern. It will also help students to grasp the amount of effort required from an examination point of view and plan their academic year accordingly.

At BYJU’S, we are always trying to make it as much easier as it is possible for the students by providing all the information they need on MP Board. Obtaining and publishing updated 2020-2021 syllabus from official sources is a part of this endeavour.

1. Proofs in Mathematics

Through a variety of examples related to mathematics and already familiar to the learner, bring out different kinds of proofs: direct, contrapositive, by contradiction, by counter-example.

2. Mathematical Modelling

Modelling real-life problems where many constraints may really need to be ignored (continuing from Class XI). However, now the models concerned would use techniques/results of matrices, calculus and linear programming.
