Mathematics Textbooks for Classes PP-VI

This is to inform all schools that the Royal Education Council (REC) has reviewed and revised the Student Activity Books for Classes PP–2, and Mathematics Textbooks for Classes 3–6, based on feedback and recommendations received from the schools before, during and even after the National School Curriculum Conference 2016. However, the revision of Teacher’s Guide is under process.

In the revised edition of the above-mentioned books, some units and chapters are rearranged, some lessons are deleted and some are clubbed together to maintain the flow of ideas and connection in all class levels. This has been done without actually losing the essence and standard of mathematics curriculum.

Therefore, all schools are requested to use the reprint 2017 edition of Mathematics textbooks for classes PP – VI, for your reference while teaching. These textbooks can be downloaded from the link given below or contact Mr. Geewanath Sharma and Mr. Tashi Dendup, Mathematics Curriculum Developers.
