What is intelligence??? Intelligence is a person's capacity to • acquire knowledge (i.e. learn and understand) • apply knowledge (solve problems) • engage in abstract reasoning
Intelligence quotient or IQ • a score derived from a set of standardized tests developed to measure a person's cognitive abilities ("intelligence") in relation to their age group • originally, it was a quotient IQ= MA/CA x 100 (MA is mental age, CA is chronological age)
IQ scores have been shown to be associated with such factors as: • morbidity and mortality • parental social status • biological parental IQ
Logical - Mathematical Intelligence Characteristics of Logical-Mathematical Intelligence: • excellent problem-solving skills • enjoys thinking about abstract ideas • likes conducting scientific experiments • good at solving complex computations
