AIM4S3™ Math Framework

Dual Language Education of New Mexico is a primary collaborator in the development of AIM4S³™, an instructional framework that deepens students’ mathematical learning

Achievement Inspired Mathematics for Scaffolding Student Success provides a framework of instructional components that shelters mathematics content to make it comprehensible and accessible to all students,

with a specific focus on English learners (ELs) and academic language learners (ALLs).  AIM4S³™ is a powerful framework that supports teachers in planning and implementing the Common Core State Standards and aligns with the four domains of The Framework for Teaching from the Danielson Group.  It can be utilized with any mathematics program and is applicable in kindergarten through middle school. This model provides strategies to allow students to own the language of mathematics, to access math knowledge, and to be fluent in demonstrating their understanding.  It also deepens teachers’ mathematical understanding and curricular knowledge.

"AIM4S3™ is a significant tool for teachers that scaffolds math concepts for all students, regardless of their proficiency level. If done well, this framework structure fits in the Highly Effective Level of Performance of Domain 3 on the New Mexico Teach Observation Rubric" (based on the Danielson Framework for Teaching)."
