Learning Math using Multiple Intelligences

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.

  1. This is awesome! I’ve been looking high and low for maths activities like these for my son. My son enjoys maths but I’d like to add another dimension to his usual math learning so these books look like they might do the job.

    Thank you for your links and review – they’re very helpful!

    Jamie,
    I think we have communicated some time in the past. Thank you so much for your Youtube review of my books–nice job! Makes me want to buy ’em! You have a very helpful looking site too! One idea–I looked a lot to find an email for you but couldn’t find it. Anyway, this is the way I discovered and I’ll use it. Check my three recent Youtube videos: http://youtu.be/C7l9F8wIyZM, http://youtu.be/jAqlaJCyOas, and http://youtu.be/Yz_qoMND7es as samples of my approach.
    Regards to you.
