The AISD STEM Academy Science/Math Pathway provides for an in-depth progression of courses in both of these areas of academic study. Careers in math focus on the tools, methods and approaches that facilitate the practice or the study of mathematics. Objectives in the STEM Academy math instruction include the teaching of basic number skills, the teaching of practical mathematics and abstract mathematical concepts, and the teaching of advanced mathematics to those students who wish to follow a career in the mathematics field. Science is the pursuit of knowledge, and the STEM Academy instruction in this field is primarily concerned with sharing science content and processes. Science education includes available content in the fields of physical, life, earth, and space sciences.
