I just went on the Internet to find out what AIMS is. Third grade math seems sensible. Except for the idiotic use of "number sentence" to mean equation.
People ought to keep records of AIMS to make sure that the new assessments are actually better. My own suspicions are so cynical. I always think the Education Establishment will keep making things dumber until they get the collectivist paradise they so clearly want.
