CBSE Class 10 Science Practical Syllabus 2017-18

CBSE Class 10 Science Practical Syllabus 2017-18

Download latest cbse Science Practical syllabus for class 10  for the session 2017-18. CBSE has changed the exam pattern this year. Board exam will be of 80 marks and 20 marks for internal assessment. This year there is no such CCE pattern or division of syllabus for SA1 or SA2 as it used to be earlier.

Each year cbse keep on issuing revised syllabus. Although the topics and textbooks remain same, the contents within vary year by year. Along with class 10 Science Practical syllabus cbse also issued the question paper pattern and marks-wise breakup along with weightage of each chapter. The package also enlists the learning objectives. That's why it is always advisable to download new class 10 syllabus 2017-18 each year and be on safe side.

Here we have presented the CBSE syllabus for Science Practical class 10 in the same format as released by CBSE, without any changes or editing from our side. Students are advised to download the class 10 cbse Science syllabus for the session 2017-2018 even if they have the previous year syllabus because there might be changes in the syllabus or question pattern or weightage of each chapter.

  Arranging Zn, Fe, Cu and Al (metals) in the decreasing order of reactivity based on the above result.

4. Studying the dependence of potential difference (V) across a resistor on the
    current (I) passing through it and determine its resistance. Also plotting a graph
    between V and I.

5. Determination of the equivalent resistance of two resistors when connected in series and parallel.

10. Determination of the focal length of :
   i) Concave mirror
   ii) Convex lens
  by obtaining the image of a distant object.

11. Tracing the path of a ray of light passing through a rectangular glass slab for
     different angles of incidence. Measure the angle of incidence, angle of refraction,
     angle of emergence and interpret the result.

12. Studying (a) binary fission in Amoeba, and (b) budding in yeast with the help of
     prepared slides.

13. Tracing the path of the rays of light through a glass prism.

14. Finding the image distance for varying object distances in case of a convex lens
      and drawing corresponding ray diagrams to show the nature of image formed.

15. Identification of the different parts of an embryo of a dicot seed (Pea, gram or red
      kidney bean).
