Naturalistic intelligence

This type of intelligence has to do with nurturing and relating the data to one’s natural surroundings, being aware of the living organisms such as the flora and fauna around. Students who have this type of intelligence as a dominant one can easily recognize and classify plants, animals and minerals and show a mastery of natural and artificial taxonomies.

These learners are holistic thinkers, they recognize the particular and value the unusual, they enjoy working in nature, exploring living things, learning about plants and natural events. Teachers can empower this type of intelligence by using environment-related and classification activities, encourage the study of relationships such as patterns and order, and compare-and-contrast sets of groups or look at connections to real life and science issues. In order to get these students involved during the Math class, the teacher can try to connect mathematical concepts to nature. For example, relate mathematical progressions to how plants grow, relate sets and Venn diagrams to types of flowers and how they share certain characteristics and not share others, have them read about Pi or the golden ratio, point out mathematical influences in nature, such as symmetry or the various geometrical patterns in natural formations or studying living organisms with a certain shape (a pentagon, for example).


The students fron FRANCE brainstrom about the link between maths and nature. Then they create a slide with a photo and a title for each topic selected. They record a video of them talking about the link between maths and nature using their smartphone. They they create an aura using AurasmaStudio, to overlay the slide with their video in Augmented Reality.

Virtual museum in #AugmentedReality .The students explain the link between maths and nature in a video overlaying the initial picture. This virtual museum is a part of the activities ran in the Comenius project, naturalistic intelligence part. #aims1315

Very interesting emoticon ! As all the other activities it was a team work, which made the activity more challenging and also funnier! I saw the exercises on the worksheet and they seemed very complicated! Good job, Italian team! (I also liked that you measured each other emoticon )
