Logical / Mathematical
According to Howard Gardner, logical-mathematical intelligence refers to “sensitivity to, and capacity to discern, logical or numerical patterns; ability to handle long chains of reasoning.”
Research has found that cognitive processes (e.g.,
executive functioning) influence children’s development of mathematical skills
- Development of early numerical skills and executive functioning are reciprocal among young children, according to a 2010 study.
- Well-publicized and much-discussed gender differences in mathematical performance may have more to do with attitudes and feelings than innate ability. Further, these attitudes and feelings vary by country, according to a well-known study.
- As with visual-spatial capacities, math and numerical abilities are associated with critical thinking skills.
Here is one program we’ve found that research has shown to augment children’s logical/mathematical capacities
- Pearson’s enVision Math is a curriculum for elementary school students that is designed to improve children’s understanding of math concepts using a variety of techniques. What Works Clearinghouse found that the curriculum can have a positive impact on children’s levels of math achievement.
