aim - achievement in maths - supported by the GE Foundation

The AIM (Achievement in Maths) Programme, funded by the GE Foundation, the Philanthropic arm of GE, is targeted at improving young people’s basic mathematics skills by providing a real work-related context through which they can be applied. This resource explores projects recently piloted in Leeds.
The AIM Programme in Leeds
The Leeds team consisted of Mathematics teachers Richard Wayman, Franck Powell and Joe Almond, supported by consultants Mike Ollerton and Liz Meenan. Staff from GE Money contributed work-based perspectives about mathematics. The approaches and materials that were developed have been trialled by teachers in Leeds schools.

In brief, the team constructed a Framework to support and develop teaching within the area of Functional Mathematics. The Framework offers teachers ideas on how to raise pupils’ understanding of how mathematics operates in workplaces and other authentic contexts. Pupils will thereby be supported to improve their mathematical skills.
