Multiple Intelligences: Logical-Mathematical


The Logical / Mathematical learner has an easy time using reason to solve problems, with a penchant for discovering patterns and relationships. It is not uncommon for this type of student excel in both math and science and, within writing, to do well in grammar or syntax. This does not mean that a logical / mathematical person will excel in all math. For example, for this type of thinker, geometry can be difficult if there is too much spatial or visual thinking.

Teaching Strategies

  • Organized outlines
  • Sequential order / chronology
  • Find the facts - analyze information for reason / logic
  • Ranking ideas or arguments based upon logic
  • Problem-based learning - analyzing a problem and creating a solution
  • Critiques
  • Using the scientific method
  • Integration of math into other subjects
  • Analyzing data
