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 Bristol.

The GE Maths Challenge was planned and undertaken by 5 schools in the Bristol area.  The challenge was a one day event which was held at GE's premises, to reinforce the business and workplace context.  Activities were developed that took into account both the feedback from teacher's and GE staff.  The learning activities were Blind Sequencing, Magic Show, Around the World in 80 days and Magic Tricks & Brainteasers.
