Making a blueprint of a question paper isn’t an easy task. Here in this post, we will get a mathematics blueprint for class 10 for your B.Ed. practicum. You will also learn how to set a balanced question paper for mathematics.

**How to Prepare a Mathematics Blueprint | B.Ed. Question Paper Setting**

If you are pursuing B.Ed. in any teacher training institutions or B.Ed. college, you will be given to prepare a blueprint for your respective subjects. Blueprint or Question Paper Setting comes under B.Ed. practicum.

Preparing a balanced question paper or Blueprint for any subject isn’t an easy task. I will need to analyze the whole book for this. Hence, it will obviously consume a lot of time. But, I want to save you time and learn how to prepare a mathematics blueprint or for any subject this post might help you a lot.

You will learn to make a mathematics blueprint step by step through this post. Here I am taking an example of a class 10 mathematics question paper setting to show you how to prepare a balanced question paper for mathematics. I have already uploaded a post on how to construct a balanced question paper?

**Steps For Mathematics Question Paper Setting:**

You have to follow a few steps while preparing a mathematics blueprint or blueprint for any subject. These steps are highly important to construct a balanced question paper. By taking an example of a class 10 mathematics blueprint or question paper setting, I will explain the steps below.

**D. Weightage to Content:**

Sl. No. | UNIT | CONTENT | MARKS |

1 | I | Real Number | 6 |

2 | II | Polynomials | 5 |

3 | III | Pair of Linear Equation in two Variable | 5 |

4 | IV | Quadratic Equations | 5 |

5 | V | Arithmetic Progressions | 5 |

6 | VI | Triangles | 6 |

7 | VII | Coordinate Geometry | 6 |

8 | VIII | Introduction to Trigonometry | 7 |

9 | IX | Some Applications of Trigonometry | 5 |

10 | X | Circles | 5 |

11 | XI | Constructions | 5 |

12 | XII | Areas Related to Circles | 5 |

13 | XIII | Surface Areas and Volumes | 5 |

14 | XIV | Statistics | 5 |

15 | XV | Probability | 6 |

TOTAL | 80 |

**E. Weightage to Difficult Level:**

DIFFICULTY LEVEL | % OF MARKS | MARKS |

Difficult | 20% | 16 |

Average | 50% | 40 |

Easy | 30% | 24 |

Total | 100% | 80 |

**2. BLUEPRINT:**

__Note:__

- The figure within the bracket “()” indicates the total number of questions and outside the brackets indicates total marks.
- ET – Essay Type, SAT – Short Answer Type, VSAT – Very Short Answer Type, OT – Objectives Type.

__Summary:__

Forms of Question | No. of Question | Marks |

ET | 5 | 25 |

SAT | 10 | 30 |

VSAT | 10 | 20 |

OT | 5 | 5 |

Total | 30 | 80 |

**3. WRITING THE QUESTIONS IN ITEMSHEET:**

**4. ORGANISATION OF QUESTIONS:**

This is basically the question paper you will prepare. For the questions paper please view the attached PDF of this maths blueprint of class 10. You can change the question by keeping in mind the blueprint.

**5. QUESTION WISE ANALYSIS:**

Here in this section, you will need to analyze each and every question which are in your question paper serial-wise. You will need to write down the objectives, specifications, Units, Forms of questions, marks allotted, estimated time, and estimated difficulty level for each question.

This can be done easily by taking references from your item sheets.

**6. PREPARING THE SCORING KEY AND MARKING SCHEME:**

In this section, You will need to write the solutions to the maths questions paper that you have prepared. This has to write in the form of a table where you will also need to write key points on which marks will be given. For better understanding please view the PDF of this maths blueprint.

**PDF – Class 10 Mathematics Blueprint For B.Ed. Practicum **

I have explained the steps for mathematics question paper setting. By following these steps you can prepare a balanced question paper for any subject. For your better understanding, I have attached the PDF of this mathematics blueprint of class 10 below.

Maths-Blueprint_watermarkI hope this post will help you in making a blueprint for mathematics as well as any subject. However, there might be a slight difference in the format of the question paper setting depending on the B.Ed. college.

Hence check the format before submitting your B.Ed. file. Also, I have also uploaded a mathematics blueprint for class 9. Please check the website.
