ICSE Class 7 Maths Syllabus For 2022-23 (Revised)

icse maths syllabus for class 7

The Indian Certificate of Secondary Education or ICSE is a private board for school education in India. 7th is considered to be the foundational class which consists of basic core topics. It covers a range of topics that are essential for students to master before moving on to higher-level mathematics. These topics are important for future classes as many of these topics in the ICSE maths syllabus for class 7 are repeated in detail in higher classes. 

The syllabus is divided into six major parts: Number System, Commercial Mathematics, Algebra, Geometry, Mensuration, and Data Handling.

Detailed Syllabus of Class 7 Maths ICSE

Chapter 1: Number System

Numbers are the basic concept in mathematics. There are various types of numbers used by humans to cater to their various needs and applications. The different types of numbers that you will learn in this chapter of the ICSE maths syllabus for class 7 are natural numbers, even & odd numbers, whole numbers, integers, and rational & irrational numbers.

Chapter 2: Power and Roots

There are many quantities or measurements that need very large numbers such as the mass of the Earth and the Sun. In such cases, we use a special type of number called exponents. This chapter introduces you to exponents and roots.

Chapter 3: HCF and LCM

There are situations where we want to split or group a number of items into smaller groups or form bigger groups and want to know the number of new groups formed. To solve such types of problems, we use the concept of HCF and LCM. In this chapter of the ICSE maths syllabus for class 7, you will learn about HCF and LCM and different methods of finding them.

Chapter 4: Fraction

Fractions are special types of numbers that represent a part of a whole. This chapter explains the various types of fractions and the basic operations that can be performed on them.

Chapter 5: Decimal Fractions

Decimals are also used to represent part of a whole and are similar to fractions. In this chapter, you will learn about decimals, their similarities with fractions, and the basic operations that are performed on decimals. 

Chapter 6: Unitary Method

The unitary method is a very simple and easy way of solving problems on variations. In this chapter of the ICSE maths syllabus for class 7, you will understand the use of the unitary method in solving problems on direct and inverse variations.

Chapter 7: Speed, Distance, and Time

Speed is a term associated with an object in motion. You know that a moving car has a speed. This chapter explains the concept and relation between speed, distance covered, and time taken by a moving object. In this chapter, you will also learn two types of speeds – uniform speed and variable speed.

  • Speed
  • Uniform Speed and Variable Speed
  • Converting Speed From One Unit to Other

Chapter 8: Ratio and Proportion

Ratios and proportions are used when we distribute items among many people. This chapter explains the terms ratios and proportions and the relation between these two. You will also learn about a type of proportion called continued proportion that involves three or more quantities.

Chapter 9: Percent and Percentage

A percentage is a term used in many areas. The mark sheets of students show the performance in terms of percentage. In this chapter of the ICSE maths syllabus for class 7, you will learn the meaning of percentages and how to solve problems based on percentages.

Chapter 10: Profit, Loss, and Discount

When you visit a mall or a shop, you come across the term called ‘discount’. In this chapter, you will understand the meaning of discount and how it is calculated along with the two other important and related terms – profit and loss.

Chapter 11: Simple Interest

Whenever someone deposits money in a bank, the bank pays back an extra amount along with the money deposited. This extra amount received by a person is called interest. In this chapter, you will learn the meaning of simple interest and how it is computed.

Chapter 12: Averages

An average of a list of data is the expression of the central value of a set of data. It is also called the mean of the data set. In this chapter, you will learn the process of calculating an average of a list of numbers.

  • Finding Average

Chapter 13: Fundamental Concepts

The expressions formed using variables and constants are known as algebraic expressions. In this chapter, you will learn about algebraic expressions, their types, and the four basic operations that can be performed on algebraic expressions.

Chapter 14: Products

Algebraic identities are expressions that are used to solve algebraic expressions quickly and easily. There are many algebraic identities that are used to make our computations easy and simple. Learn about these identities in this chapter.

  • Algebraic Identities

Chapter 15: Simplifications

While solving algebraic expressions, we generally group and regroup the component terms and expressions to make our calculations easy. This chapter explains the ways of simplifying algebraic expressions by using brackets.
