The Theory of Multiple Intelligences
Howard Gardner proposed the multiple intelligences theory in the year 1983 in order to precisely describe the intelligence notion and deal with the legitimacy of ways used in intelligence rankings. To him intelligence as originally classified does not comprise satisfactorily all human abilities in vast and diverse way as they are generally displayed. The theory recommends learning institutions to gather for individual needs of every kid in education rather than dependence on standardized curricula.
In such concept, the argument is that a pupil who masters arithmetic with ease is not in any way generally intelligent than his counterpart who with difficult solves the computation. The latter may be superior in another intelligence category and consequently through a varied approach may best learn how to tackle the sum, may be excellent in another field rather than mathematics, or may be viewing the arithmetic through a basically higher level perspective that conceals advanced mathematical intelligence from the former who with ease memorizes the theory.
