On this page you will find Technical Mathematics Grade 12 NSC Paper 1 and Paper 2 Exam Topics and Structure Guide from the CAPS syllabus.

Mathematics is a universal science language that makes use of symbols and notations for describing numerical, geometric and graphical relationships. It is a human activity that involves observing, representing and investigating patterns and qualitative relationships in physical and social phenomena and between mathematical objects themselves. It helps to develop mental processes that enhance logical and critical thinking, accuracy and problem solving that will contribute in decision-making.

Mathematical problem solving enables us to understand the world (physical, social and economic) around us, and, most of all, teaches us to think creatively. The aim of Technical Mathematics is to apply the Science of Mathematics to the Technical field where the emphasis is on APPLICATION and not on abstract ideas.
