This syllabus is available only to Centers participating in the NCEE Excellence for All initiative in the USA. An essential subject for all learners, Cambridge IGCSE Mathematics (US) encourages the development of mathematical knowledge as a key life skill, and as a basis for more advanced study. The syllabus aims to build learners' confidence by helping them develop a feel for numbers, patterns and relationships, and places a strong emphasis on solving problems and presenting and interpreting results. Learners also gain an understanding of how to communicate and reason using mathematical concepts.
We are withdrawing Cambridge IGCSE Mathematics (US) (0444) from the November exam series. The last November exam series will be in 2023. From 2024, we will only offer this syllabus in the June exam series. We communicated this series withdrawal decision to schools in June 2021.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
For some subjects, the syllabus states that Grade Descriptions will be made available after first assessment in 2020 or 2021.
Publication of grade descriptions for these syllabuses has been delayed. This is to make sure that grade descriptions reflect examination outcomes appropriately and are based on the full range of candidate performance after the 2020 and 2021 series.
We provide a wide range of support so that teachers can give their learners the best possible preparation for Cambridge programmes and qualifications. For teachers at registered Cambridge schools, support materials for specific syllabuses are available from the School Support Hub (username and password required).
