The objective of teaching Mathematics is to develop the skills of problem-solving and logical reasoning within learners. The curriculum is structured in a manner that each student is thoroughly clear of all the concepts by the end of the grade. The aim of Grade 7 is to provide learners with the relatively complex concepts which prepares them to build a strong logical base for future.
