Why does CBSE teach integration and
differentiation to commerce students?
People from maths background will definitely understand Integration and Differentiation.
But talking about commerce students who actually took commerce to avoid
mathematics are indulged in practicing these chapters. So first of all let me
tell you something about these chapters. These two chapters come under Calculus
in mathematics which is considered an important part or unit. These chapters
basically have methods for solving and proving questions.
Now talking about myself I have completed my 12th from CBSE board from the
stream commerce and mathematics as an optional subject. This title was quite
interesting for me to pen down as I can understand the pain of students with
commerce + math. Making a balance between Accountancy and Mathematics is
really a tough job. You need equal practice in both the subjects. Well, personally
I found these chapters very interesting. Once you learn the method of solving
you will love to solve problems of differentiation and integration.
Now as we all know mathematics is a practical and practicing subject. It’s not theory
that one will learn in a day. All you need is practice to improve your math. And
I think these two chapters are taught only to those commerce students who have
mathematics as their optional subject. Though we can say we have Economics for
some mathematical part taught in that.
Well if I answer this question- why CBSE teach these two chapters in commerce then it may
be because we ‘commercians’ will be appearing for many entrance exams for which mathematics is a compulsory
subject. We get such proving questions from calculus in our entrance exams.
Moreover people from commerce field who want to become CA needs maths as their
subject. Calculus is actually an important topic for all the students in the
field of commerce, math or wherever practical knowledge needed.
Another importance of these chapters in commerce is it can be used for studying various
graphs and charts which we actually have as our subjects. It also help to
derive formulae that will help you in solving topics like demand and supply,
other economic conditions etc.
