Using the theory of multiple intelligences to increase number sense in secondary students
The research question addressed in this project was, how is number sense developed in secondary education students? The need for this project was evident in remedial math courses taught at the secondary level. Students in remedial math courses have lower level number sense than their counterparts in regular and advanced math courses. The need for developed number sense to be successful at mathematics is documented in the research. Number sense is generally developed early in a child's life, and if that does not occur, remediation can be integrated into the secondary math curriculum. In this project, the author uses the theory of multiple intelligences to create lessons which will teach students mathematical operations involving number sense while engaging the eight intelligences documented by Howard Gardner in his book Frames of Mind (1997).
