Welcome to the Cambridge Secondary 1 Mathematics curriculum framework. Stage 8 .....................................................................................................7
Stage 9 ................................................................................................... 14

This framework provides a comprehensive set of progressive learning objectives for mathematics. The objectives detail what the learner should know or what they should be able to do in each year of lower secondary education. The learning objectives provide a structure for teaching and learning and a reference against which learners’ ability and understanding can be checked.
The Cambridge Secondary 1 mathematics curriculum is presented in six content areas: Number, Algebra, Geometry, Measure, Handling data and Problem solving. The first five content areas are all underpinned by Problem solving, which provides a structure for the application of mathematical skills. Mental strategies are also a key part of the Number content. Together, these two areas form a progressive step preparing students for entry onto IGCSE level courses. This curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject. The Cambridge Secondary 1 Mathematics curriculum framework continues the journey from the Cambridge
Primary Mathematics framework and provides a solid foundation upon which the later stages of education can be built.
The Cambridge Curriculum is founded on the values of the University of Cambridge and best practice in schools. The curriculum is dedicated to developing learners who are confident, responsible, innovative and engaged. Each
