What is intelligence?

A person's ability to think, learn, and understand

Most importantly, it is the ability to apply what is learned to one's life and to new situations

It comes in different forms

People have a wide variety of cognitive abilities (Howard Gardner)

People may have stronger ability in a particular intelligence area

It involves being able to think creatively ("outside the box")

Components of intelligence

Problem solving


Abstract thinking

Ability to learn


Ability to apply and generalize

How do children acquire intelligence?

Through interaction with parents/caregivers

Through their experiences and exposure to different situations in their environments

Nature v. nurture?

I believe that intelligence is a combination of genetics and environment

Parents who provide enriching activities and experiences for their children help their children reach their intellectual potential
