Jamb Mathematics Hot Topics

Good day viewers and welcome to poschools, Today, I will be listing out topics Jamb sets almost every year I call them “Jamb Mathematics Hot Topics”. I always advise student to read and study Jamb Mathematics Hot Topics fist before studying other to

Jamb Mathematics Syllabus

The Jamb Mathematics Syllabus is available by CLICKING HERE. Students who have seen the Jamb Mathematics syllabus often get frustrated because of the large number of topics.

The 2019 Jamb Mathematics syllabus has 23 different topics. Although, I will encourage you to study all 23 topics so that you blast the Jamb exam. Get this now, “Efficiency is all you need“. It is better to study 75% of the topics in Jamb syllabus to blast Jamb with ease(Jamb Mathematics Hot Topics).

Rather than studying all the 23 topics on the Jamb Mathematics syllabus and yet you cant still answers question fro those topics.

Below is a list of Jamb Mathematics Hot topics.

1. Indices, Logarithms and Surds:

These topics are jamb mathematics hot topics. Topics from indices,Logarithms and surds are set almost every year. Therefore, this should be among jamb mathematics hot topics

i. apply the laws of indices in calculation;
ii.Be able to establish the relationship between indices and logarithms in solving problems;
iii. Learn to solve problems in different bases in logarithms;
iv. Learn to simplify and rationalize surds;
v. Learn to perform basic operations on surds.

2. Number bases:

Number bases is another hot topic in mathematics jamb never seizes to set. Topics from number bases comes out almost every year. Therefore, it should be among Jamb Mathematics hot topics.

i. Learn to perform four basic operations (x,+,-,÷) on numbers with any base
ii. Also learn to convert one base to another.

iii. Learn to convert from one base to the other including fractional parts.

3.Learn Fractions, Decimals, Approximations and Percentages:

These are topics you should make sure you finish in other to blast jamb mathematics. Questions from these topicscan be seen every year in past questions. Therefore, this should be among Jamb Mathematics Hot Topics.

i.Learn to  perform basic operations (x,+,-,÷) on fractions and decimals;
ii. Learn express to specified number of significant figures and decimal places;
iii. Learn to calculate simple interest, profit and loss percent; ratio proportion and rate;
iv. Learn to Solve problems involving share and VAT.

4. Progression:

Expect questions from arithmetic and geometric progression as it is also among jamb mathematics hot topics

i.Learn to determine the nth term of a progression;
ii.Learn to compute the sum of A. P. and G.P;
iii.Learn to compute sum to infinity of a given G.P.

5. Inequalities:

Question from inequalities do show up in past questions, Although not every year. Inequalities is also part of Jamb Mathematics Hot Topics.

i. Learn to solve problems on linear and quadratic inequalities;
ii. Learn to interpret graphs of inequalities.

6. Polynomials:
