What are the differences between the following: curriculum, syllabus and school time table?
These are three rather different things, even though all of them are related to education.
A curriculum is the set of materials and practices by which students are to achieve a given set of educational objectives. That is, a curriculum is a fairly detailed outline of how you are going to teach a given class. It involves the readings that will be assigned, the lesson plans used to teach the relevant concepts and information, the assessments that will be used, and much more.
A syllabus is typically a more streamlined document. This is a document that tells students what is to be expected of them in a given class. It does briefly outline the course objectives and it informs the students of the general schedule for the class. It typically sets out grading standards, standards of conduct, and other such administrative details. However, it is not as detailed as a curriculum would be.
Finally, a school time table is simply a schedule. This is a document that shows what classes are to be offered and what times, and in what places. It does not say anything about the content of the classes. It merely tells people the basics that they need to know in order to be in the right place at the right time.
