AIMS is a non-profit foundation dedicated to helping teachers give students a solid conceptual understanding of math and science.
In 1981, 80 elementary and middle school teachers who shared the dream of giving students a strong hands-on foundation in math and science came together at Fresno Pacific and wrote the first AIMS’ activity books. Teachers loved them! Students learned more, learned in greater depth, and enjoyed learning. The word spread, and soon teachers across the nation were using AIMS to engage their students in hands-on learning.
Today, with pacing guides to follow and testing schedules to meet, teachers have less freedom to take advantage of teachable moments. Yet hands-on experiences are needed more than ever! So AIMS remains dedicated to producing math and science materials that will engage students and build conceptual understanding.
As a non-profit foundation, we are motivated by a passion for teaching and learning, not by profit. Our home is still on the campus of
Fresno Pacific University. We are committed to doing what’s best for students, and we never tire of helping them experience the joy of learning. Join us!
- We'll make learning engaging.
- We'll make our activities affordable, and the required materials will be readily available.
- We'll make our activities easy to use, without compromising their conceptual development or effectiveness.
