The scheme of work provided here would go a long way in not just helping the teachers in carefully breaking down the subject, topics and subtopics but also, devise more practical ways of imparting this knowledge on the pupils.
We have realized that the search for the government approved scheme of work for mathematics has been on the rise, reason being that mathematics is one of the most important subjects offered in Junior and senior secondary schools. It is also an important admission requirements for admission into any higher institution. The fact that the scheme of work for mathematics in Junior secondary is the same irrespective of whether the school if public or private, it makes it much easier and brings about uniformity in the educational sector.

The scheme of work for JSS 3 Mathematics first term covers subjects like Number Bases, Computer Application, Word Problems, Interpretation of word problems involving product and division into numerical, Proportion and Variation, Approximations and Factorization.
While 2nd term covers Simple equation involving fractions. Word problems involving, Simultaneous Equation (Elimination Method and Substitution Method) Similar Shapes, Trigonometry, Construction, Revision of Mean, Medium and Mode and Revision of pie charts.
Please note that the scheme of work for JSS 3 Mathematics provided here is for 1st term, 2nd term and 3rd term as approved by Lagos state government, Federal government and other states in Nigeria in alliance with WAEC.
