Using Multiple Intelligences to Differentiate a Math Lesson
Jessica Netzloff's Application
I plan on using MI in my classroom by:
- implementing MI stations
- develop a variety of activity
(example: Graphing lines
create a giant Cartesian plane)
Key Learning #1
Including all 8 multiple intelligences is unrealistic and does not help improve the learning of the students (Furner, Yahya, Duffy, 2005)
Key Learning #2
Students are more likely to take control of their own learning and develop confidence in their education. (Hopper & Hurry, 2000)
Key Learning #3
Students need to explore ways to create representations of learning in their own way (Adams, 2000).
Key Learning #4
Connecting mathematical computations to things in their life, students are more likely to see math as a tool (Adams, 2000).
Key Learning #5
Using multiple intelligences helps you reach those students that don’t share your learning style. (Tomlinson, 2001).
Key Learning #6
Most teachers that teach math focus on the logical-mathematical and linguistic intelligences when instructing a math lesson; by using multiple intelligences students will learn in their preferred learning area. (Ozdemir, 2006)
Key Learning #7
“Teachers will need to rethink how students can show what they know.” (Stanford, 2003)
Key Learning #8
It is challenging to allow students to make choices and develop ways of learning based on what they are interested in. (Gardner, Hillary, 2011).

Jessica Hessler's Application
I plan on using MI in my classroom by:
-Offering choices of activities that address a variety of MI areas
ex. offering a menu where each activity relates to an MI but addresses same goal
-Have students complete MI surveys and self-reflect on their learning strengths and weaknesses
