According to one of the students, the grade nine units covering Algebra, geometry, statistics, probability, and trigonometry in the textbook have not been taught.
Damodar Joshi, the Assistant Principal of the school, says that the mathematics course in the grade nine section ‘F’could not be completed due to technical reasons.
“Due to the change of the teacher’s responsibilities, the entire course could not be completed, he said. He further added that the school will prepare to teach the rest of the course at the beginning of the new academic session.”
