Logical-Mathematical Intelligence or Logic Smarts


If you like to work with numbers and large mathmatical problems,

If you like to do puzzles and break codes, and adapt or create recipes

If you like to do science experiments and propose and solve hypotheses,

If you like to work with patterns, figure out brainteasers, and work with graphs and tables and maps and geometry

You might be logic smart.


People who are logic smart enjoy math, science, and logical thinking. They like to work with numbers and codes and puzzles. They enjoy critical thinking and solving complex programs.


Kids who are logic smart might grow up to be accountants, scientists, cooks, engineers, computer programmers, law, chemistry


Programming for Logic Smart Learners

Creating logic smart activities can sometimes be intimidating especially if it's not an intellignece that you are strong in but don't let it. There are many fun games and simple activities that you can do to include this intelligence in library programming. 


Here is a list of potential program ideas

  • Do a program about codes
  • Do a book discussion on a chapter book that has codes in it like Chasing Vermeer by Blue Balliet or Harriet Tubman, Secret Agent by Thomas Allen
  • Do a program about science experiments or incorporate science experiments into an existing program
  • Include games like tangrams, sudoko, chess, checkers
  • Use different kinds of maps to help kids learn about different countries
  • Ask questions after a story to help kids recall and think through the story and its meanings
  • Use riddles
  • If you're doing a sports program, talk about some sports statistics
  • Do a creative writing workshop about mysteries. For one of our creative writing workshops two instructors lead a joint mystery writing workshop where a group of fifteen kids worked with the leaders to create one mystery story.
