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 London.

The AIM Programme in London
The GE AiM London Pilot has brought together employees from CNBC Europe and GE Ambassadors alongside schools and mathematics resource developers to explore how functional mathematics is used in a day in the life of a television production assistant. Using a visually and mathematically stimulating video as the main context, pupils explore how the production assistant manages the development of progarmmes to meet both financial and time constraints. A series of pre-prepared resources can be used in a variety of ways to support students to see the relevance of learning mathematics to the workplace and motivate them to apply their own mathematical skills to real scenarios.

You may need to download Flash player (or a later version if you already have it). It can be downloaded from http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/. This is Flash 9, but you would only need Flash 8 to view the video. Older versions, however, may not play, and would need to be updated to v8 or v9..

I can't get the video to play - what programme do I need, or can the format be changed to one more commonly used please?
