Logical-Mathematical Intelligence By: Sarah Young Creating a Learning Environment Logical Mathematical Students To deepen students' understanding of mathematics, the learning process cannot simply be memorizing and computing. The teacher should instead use diverse questioning strategies, pose open-ended problems, help students apply math to real world situations, use concrete objects to demonstrate, allow students to predict and verify outcomes, as well as justify opinions, help them to discern patterns, provide opportunities to observe and investigate, use technology, and connect math to other subject areas. What is logical mathematical intelligence? Logical Mathematical Characteristics Involves mathematical calculations, logical thinking, problem-solving, deductive and inductive reasoning, and discerning patterns and relationships

The most essential part of this intelligence is the ability to recognize and solve problems. Activities for Logical Mathematical Learners Technology Real World Situations Concrete Objects Teaching Logic Deductive vs. Inductive - deductive is where the conclusion follows a process to reach a logical conclusion. Whereas inductive the conclusion is developed step-by-step from detail facts to general principles or ideas. Deductive Ways to Teach Logic ~Syllogisms - Example:

All men are mortal.

Socrates is a man.

Therefore, Socrates is mortal.

~Venn Diagrams

Inductive Ways to Teach Logic ~Analogies - Example:

Five: Ten :: Fifty: ________ Teach logic by...

~Scientific Method

~Using scientific thinking in every subject area - in PE students could test if aerobic exercise reduces resting heart rate. In learning about Ancient Egypt in history, students could predict and test to see if mummification really works. Mathematical Thinking Process Patterning - The skill of recognizing patterns is valuable; the teacher can have the student use pattern blocks to create and represent different patterns. The teacher can also have the student find patterns in collected data, or even have the student break codes the teacher created.

Graphs - the student can demonstrate information acquired through research or survey to make the information more easily understood. Working with Numbers Includes...
