Time: 4:00 -5:00pm
The purpose of this talk is to illustrate how Howard Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences may be applied in mathematics classrooms in the context of an origami project. We discuss an origami project and the mathematics behind the project, and then use the origami project to discuss how Howard Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences and idea of entry points can be applied in mathematics classrooms to help students understand and appreciate mathematics.
