Logical-mathematical intelligence

 This intelligence is most often associated with scientific and mathematical thinking. It has to do with both inductive and deductive logic, the ability to detect patterns, abstractions, with reasoning, numbers and critical thinking, but  it is also connected to having the capacity to understand the underlying principles of some kind of causal system and can refer to an individual’s ability to do things with data: collect, and organize, analyze and interpret, conclude and predict. It was studied and documented by Piaget. Students with this type of intelligence like working with numbers and patterns, excel at drawing conclusions from gathered data, to ask questions and conduct experiments. They are good at using symbols such as mathematical symbols, scientific symbols and by using ‘scientific logic’ or reasoning to link ideas, they look for logic, order and consistency. These pupils are usually analytic learners, they prefer to break mathematical ideas to be learnt into small parts and work on each part at a time, and finally reconnect the parts to each other in a logical manner into a mental picture.

 

Teachers can empower this intelligence by encouraging the use of computer programming languages, critical-thinking activities, linear outlining, science-fiction scenarios, logic puzzles, and the use of logical/sequential presentation of subject matter.The challenge when teaching these students is avoiding boredom.
