Slide 1: 

Susan Colwell National University MAT 674 How multiple Intelligence Benefits Students

What is Multiple Intelligence? : 

What is Multiple Intelligence? Theory of multiple intelligence was proposed by Howard Gardner in 1983. In short it says people are intelligent in more ways then just the traditional IQ test. Humans have various cognitive abilities.

Slide 3: 

Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence

Verbal Linguistic : 

Verbal Linguistic Sensitivity to spoken and written language

Logical / Mathematical : 

Logical / Mathematical Is the capacity to analyze problems logically, carry out mathematical operations, and investigate issues scientifically.

Visual / Spatial : 

Visual / Spatial recognize and use the patterns of wide space and more confined areas

Bodily / Kinesthetic : 

Bodily / Kinesthetic using one’s whole body or parts of the body to solve problems

Musical / Rhythmic : 

Musical / Rhythmic In Musical / Rhythmic humans excel at performance, composition, and appreciation of musical patterns. It encompasses the capacity to recognize and compose musical pitches, tones, and rhythms.

The Naturalist : 

The Naturalist Has the ability to see patterns in nature, such as the differentiation between leaves and or rocks.

Interpersonal : 

Interpersonal Has the capacity to understand the intentions, motivations and desires of other people. Almost like a “street smarts.”

Intrapersonal : 

Intrapersonal In tune with oneself, to appreciate one’s feelings, fears and motivations

Why use Multiple Intelligence within the classroom? : 

Why use Multiple Intelligence within the classroom? The idea is simple, if people learn in many different ways, and we teach using the basic two, Verbal / Linguistic and Logical / mathematical, we are leaving out and leaving behind all the other learners. By designing lessons that use a variety of different aspects then we are tapping into each child's natural learning ability. Hmm..

Examples from the Video : 

Examples from the Video The Ross School Math Lesson on Probability Bodily / Kinesthetic ~ Students physically move each other as a demonstration of probability, rolling the dice Logical / mathematics ~ Students make predictions on the solution of the problems Visual / Spatial ~ Students visual see the different probabilities by physically moving different students around
