Mathematics and IQ  

Multiple intelligences refers to a theory of intelligence developed in the mid-1980s by Howard Gardner, professor of education at Harvard University. Gardner defines intelligence as "the ability to solve problems or fashion products that are valued in at least one culture." IQ tests, he points out, cannot measure the value of a product or one's ability to produce a product.

Gardner originally identified seven intelligences: linguistic, logical-mathematical, musical, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, and interpersonal. He now suggests the existence of several others, including naturalist, spiritual, and existential. Everyone has these intelligences in different proportions. Teachers who use multiple intelligences theories strive to present subject matter in ways that use language, numbers, physical surroundings, sound, the body, and social skills.
