Improving Teaching of Mathematics through Multiple Intelligences Theory based activities at Secondary School Level
This study was conducted to improve the academic achievement of students in the subject of mathematics at the secondary school level through the application of multiple intelligences theory-based activities at the secondary school level. The researcher used a true experimental design in this study. The population of the study comprised of all secondary school students of district Bannu and 60 students were randomly selected as a sample of study who were further divided(based on pre-test score) into two equivalent groups (Control and Experimental). The experimental group was taught through MIT-based activities, while the control group was taught through the traditional method of teaching. This treatment lasted for eight weeks. At the end of the procedure, a post-test was conducted to find out its outcome. The data obtained was analyzed by SPSS. To compare the achievements of both classes, researchers used the Independent Sample t-test and the Paired Sample t-test. To find out its effect size, Cohens'd was used. Results showed that the experimental group taught through multiple intelligence theory-based exercises has good academic achievements as compared to the results control group taught through the conventional method of teaching.
