Multiple IntelligencesLogical-Mathematic

The Logical-Mathematical Intelligence (logic smart) is related to scientific reasoning and thinking skills that are dominated by inductive reasoning techniques such as finding patterns, identifying abstract concepts, searching for relationships and connections, classifying, categorizing, sequencing and outlining. The logical-mathematical learner typically solves problems with logic, calculates math problems quickly, and prefers to see things categorized in a logical sense of order. This intelligence includes sensitivity to logical patterns and relationships, statements and propositions, functions, and other abstractions.
