Abstract:
The current transition from industrial society to information society places intelligence at the core of education. In 1983, Howard Gardner, an American psychologist, developed the theory of Multiple Intelligences. This theory states that people possess cluster of different intelligences and along with that they learn in many different ways. The opportunity to learn in different ways make learning process at any stage of life more efficient is also likely to make learning more effective. Attention to an individual's preferred mode of learning or thinking promotes improved achievement (Tomlinson, 1999). In this way, students will have optimum learning if the concepts, principles and skills being taught are presented in their preferable learning style and they will be able to express themselves well. The present study was intended to examine the influence of various human ecological factors on logical –mathematical intelligence of senior secondary school students in Mahendergarh district. Questionnaire method was used for the study. The data was collected using Multiple Intelligence Assessment Tool developed by Kaur, 2006 on a study sample consisting of 200 students from senior secondary schools of both areas of Mahendergarh (Haryana) i.e., rural and urban. The study revealed that family type, number of siblings, residential surrounding, duration of interaction with grandparents, school environment and relationship with the teachers were significantly associated with logical mathematical intelligence of the respondents.
