## RECAP

In JSS 2 Mathematics, the scheme of work is designed to take you through a well-rounded journey of foundational concepts that grow in complexity as the year progresses.

Each term introduces you to key areas like whole numbers, algebraic expressions, and geometry, with a focus on problem-solving and real-life applications.

The first term covers basics such as whole numbers, fractions, and algebra, while the second term delves deeper into algebra, equations, and graphs.

By the third term, you get to explore more advanced topics like angles, bearings, and probability, preparing you for higher-level mathematical challenges.

Each topic is carefully structured to build on the previous one, ensuring a solid mathematical foundation by the end of the academic year.
