Howard Gardner first explained his theory of Multiple Intelligences in his book Frames of Mind (1983). Since then, educators everywhere have learned how important it is to discover how each individual student prefers to learn and solve problems. The eight types that Gardner has identified are: musical, logical-mathematical, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, spatial, intrapersonal, linguistic, and naturalist. The key thing to remember is that math doesn’t have to be taught or learned the same way. Mark Wahl’s book, Math for Humans: Teaching Math Through 8 Intelligences, shows us how.
