For Cambridge Secondary Mathematics Checkpoint, the curriculum is presented in six content areas or ‘strands’. These are further divided into ‘substrands’.

The first five content areas are all underpinned by Problem solving, which provides a structure for the application of mathematical skills. Mental strategies are also a key part of the Number content. Together, these two areas form a progressive step preparing students for entry onto IGCSE level courses. This curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject.

The six content areas are as follows:

- Numbers
- Algebra
- Geometry
- Measuring
- Handling Data and
- Problem Solving
