The Professional Learning Division of the AIMS Center for Math and Science Education is committed to empowering teachers across the nation to strengthen their students’ conceptual, representational, and abstract understanding of math and science content.
Our goal is to facilitate powerful professional learning opportunities for educators, modeling hands-on math and science tasks which allow them to experience and learn methods to successfully incorporate hands-on manipulatives into their math and science classrooms. These workshops are designed to assist teachers in changing or altering their current teaching beliefs and/or practices.
“AIMS continues to live up to the reputation of providing high quality professional development with direct correlation to the applicable Standards of Learning. We have enjoyed partnering with you on this grant funded opportunity and hope to do business with AIMS again in the future.”
-Paula C. Lichiello, Assistant Dean, Lynchburg College, VA
“I am always telling my students they have to ‘own it.’ Well, you don’t ‘own it’ if you can’t use it. AIMS provides a way for students to actually use math, and it is usage that proves our ownership.” – Corri Mowrer, 5th grade teacher, Harvest Valley Elementary, CA
