Through the years, from the time of the Kothari Commission, there have been several committees looking at ways of making the school curriculum meaningful and enjoyable for the learners. Based on the understanding developed over the years, a National Curriculum Framework (NCF) was finalised in 2005. As part of this exercise, a National Focus Group on Teaching of Mathematics was formed. Its report, which came in 2005, highlighted a constructivist approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics. The essence of this approach is that children already know, and do some mathematics very naturally in their surroundings, before they even join school. The syllabus, teaching approach, textbooks etc., should build on this knowledge in a way that allows children to enjoy mathematics, and to realise that mathematics is more about a way of reasoning than about mechanically applying formulae and algorithms.

NCERT Solutions for Class 10 are solved by experts of AskGuru in order to help students to obtain excellent marks in their board examination. All the questions and answers that are present in the CBSE NCERT Books has been included on this page. The CBSE Class 10 board exams are the first public exams that every student has to face. The structure of this exam is to test the candidate’s practical as well as theoretical knowledge. Hence, it is important for students to have a clear understanding of the concepts and relating them to real-world applications will help them have strong practical knowledge as well.

NCERT Solutions for Class 10 Maths for all the exercises from Chapters 1 to 15 are provided here.
