Transcript

  • 1. Analytical Integrated Mathematics
    Engineering Math
    Waco ISD
  • 2. “We want people who can work with their heads and their hands.” –Bob Ludlum, Ludlum Instruments, Sweetwater, TX
  • 3. Why AIM ?
    In Texas, approximately 50% of community college freshman and 22% of university freshman require remedial courses in spite of having passed the state-mandated TAKS
  • 4. Why AIM ?
    In Texas, four years of high school math will be required for graduation in order to help ensure that students are prepared for post-secondary education.
  • 5. Why AIM?
    The 4th year of math should be focused on learning that helps students acquire skills needed for successful careers while they achieve college readiness standards.

  • 7. 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.

    AIM has been approved as Engineering Math which will serve for the fourth year of math that starts with the 2011 graduating class
  • 22. “Just because a course is academic, don’t assume it’s rigorous.
    Just because a course is CTE,
    don’t assume it’s not.”
    - Robert Scott,
    Commissioner of Education
