Video – Gifts and Talents (Logical/Mathematical)
Math/Science (Logical/Mathematical Intelligence): Gifts reflected in a highly developed understanding of processes and problem solving and are demonstrated by scientists, researchers, mathematicians, and strategists in solving complex mathematical equations and scientific problems. Students who are highly developed in this area are good at analyzing and solving problems in subjects like math and science. These students enjoy figuring out patterns, matching similarities, computer programming, robotics, engineering, or doing crossword puzzles.
The student portrayed in this video provides an excellent example of merging a gift or talent into leadership and serving a community need. Kevin’s innovation in engineering serves a community need and has been developed into a clearly-defined ‘Hook.’
