AIM Design AIM is both relevant and rigorous. AIM is relevant because students can see how math applies as they build robots to meet challenges. AIM is relevant because it can lead to high-tech jobs. AIM is specifically designed with the rigor associated with pre-calculus or statistics classes. Exploratory learning is combined with Accuplacer-like weekly tests that demand mastery of the content.
