AIMS Workshop

AIMS Center Professional Learning utilizes hands-on, content rich, conceptually based math and science lessons written at the AIMS Education Foundation. Each day offers multiple renewal and growth opportunities for educators in math and science. Teachers will have time:

  • to reflect on the chosen math or science lessons
  • to think about how they might initiate change in their own classroom practices
  • to discuss the language of math and science
  • to discuss how students think and write about math and science
