Areas to cover within this two weeks include:

1. Simple statement; meaning of simple statement. True or False; negative of simple statement.
2. Compound and simple statement. Difference between simple and compound statement, conjunction, disjunction, implication and bi-implication.

Week 8: Constructions

Students are expected to attend mathematics class this week with materials for practical work. This is important as they will be involved in the following:

1. Construction of basic angles, 30⁰, 45⁰, 60⁰, 90⁰, etc.
2. Construction of triangles.
3. Four sided plane given certain conditions.
4. Locus of moving points, equidistant from two lines, two points and constant distance from a point.

Weeks 9&10: Proofs Of Some Basic Theorems

The focal areas at this stage will include:

1. Proof of : Angle sum of a triangle is 180⁰.
2. The exterior angles of a triangle is equal to the sum of two interior opposite angles.
3. Riders including: Angles of parallel lines, angle in a polygon, congruent triangles, similar triangles, proportion of parallelogram and intercept theorem.

Third Term Mathematics

The duration of the third term is thirteen weeks. Eleven weeks are for teaching and learning while two are for revision and examination.

Details Of scheme Of Work For The Third Term

Week 1: Revision

The teacher and students are to use the first week to revise the second term work. Students are to point out difficult areas to be revised.

Weeks 2, 3, &4: Trigonometrical Ratios And Pythagoras Theorem,

It is expected that by the end of this three weeks, the teacher would have led the students to master:

1. Trigonometrical Ratios of special angles 30, 45 and without tables.
2. Complementary angles.
3. Application of trigonometric ratios of special angles to simple problem.
4. Trigonometric ratios related to the unit circle.
5. Graph of sine, cosine and tangent using intervals of 30, along x—axis

Weeks 5, 6, 7, 8, 9: Mensuration Of Plane Figures And 3-Dimensional Figure
