Gardner's theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI) states that people learn through a combination of eight intelligences rather than one intelligence as was originally believed. Furthermore, each person has several dominant intelligences through which he/she learns better and more quickly. Two applications which use multiple intelligences in teaching concepts in college level mathematics courses are described. Anecdotal evidence suggests that students have better long-term comprehension when multiple intelligence theory is used in the presentation of concepts. Finally, the need for formal assessment of the outcome of using MI theory is discussed.
