The study took place in the first semester 2010-2011. The sample consisted of (217) students who were divided into three groups for boys and three for girls. The sample was a stratified random sample. The first group was taught according to the strategy of multiple intelligence, and the second group according to the strategy of problem-solving, while the third was taught according to the strategy of the six hats. Researchers prepared a test to measure the level of scientific thinking among members of the study. The instrument included five areas. The results of the study were:
There were statistically significant differences between the average score of students who studied according to the six hats and the average score of students who studied according to the multiple intelligence, and problem solving in favor of the former group.
Females outscored males (p ≤ .05)
There was no significant interaction effect between teaching strategy and gender at (p ≤ 0.05).
