Keywords: Multiple Intelligences | Achievement | Demographic Variables | High School Students.

The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between students’ multiple intelligence fields and some variables (type of school, gender, financial state of the family, educational background of the parents, a computer available for use at home and the number of siblings), and the relationship between intelligence fields and students’ physics achievement. The study was carried out with students (n=327) attended to high school. In the study data was collected through Multiple Intelligences Scale, physics achievement scores and personal information questionnaire. Descriptive statistics, Independent samples t-test, Correlation analysis, Anova and Scheffe tests were used to analyze data. Analysis of the data revealed meaningful differences among the schools in multiple intelligence fields, positive correlations between physics achievement and intrapersonal and mathematic intelligence whereas negative correlations between physics achievement and bodily-kinesthetic intelligence. Moreever, significant differences were found in students’ multiple intelligence fields with respect to gender, parental education, financial state of family, availability of a computer at home.
