CBSE Class 11th Mathematics Syllabus (New) 2022-23

The Syllabus in the subject of Mathematics has undergone changes from time to time in
accordance with the growth of the subject and the emerging needs of society. The senior Secondary stage is a launching stage from where the students go either for higher academic education in Mathematics or for professional courses like Engineering, Physical and Biological science, Commerce, or Computer Applications.

Unit-II: Algebra

1. Complex Numbers and Quadratic Equations

Need for complex numbers, especially√−1, to be motivated by the inability to solve some of the quadratic equations. Algebraic properties of complex numbers. Argand plane

2. Linear Inequalities

Linear inequalities. Algebraic solutions of linear inequalities in one variable and their representation on the number line.
