All About Class 11 Mathematics

All About Class 11 Mathematics | All About Class 11 Mathematics | The Central Board of Secondary Education has introduced a Class 11 Syllabus, i.e., Applied Mathematics. It is a combination of mathematical science along with specialized knowledge in various subjects. This subject illustrates the extensive use of mathematics by other areas such as Engineering, Physics, Medical, and more. As it is the latest introduction for a lot of students, this article discusses all the syllabus of CBSE class 11 applied mathematics.

About Applied Mathematics

Maths is an extensively used subject in various fields; it helps in the life of the student. It is also observed that the current Mathematics syllabus is appropriate for Science stream students but not with other streams like Commerce. Due to this, Applied Mathematics is introduced as an elective course to help the student make a brilliant career.
