ABSTRACT

The aim of this research is to examine the effect of Math worksheets based on the Multiple Intelligences Theory on the academic achievement of students in the 4th grade primary school. The sample of the research consists of 64 (32 experimental and 32 control) students who are studying in the 4th grade in a primary school affiliated to the Ministry of National Education in the province of Bağlar, Diyarbakır in the academic year of 2016-2017. Experimental design with pre-test and post-test control group was used in the study. The obtained pre-test and post-test data were analyzed with SPSS 22.00 package program. Content analysis of interview data was conducted. According to the results of the research, it is shown that Math worksheets prepared on the basis of the Multiple Intelligences Theory has increased the academic achievements of the students in general. According to these results, it can be said that the preparation of Math worksheets according to students' different intelligence fields can positively influence the academic achievement of the students.
