Abstract

The present study aims to assess the Mathematical Ability and General Intelligence among VII standard Jenukuruba Tribal students of Hunsur Taluk in relation to their gender, and types of schools.  The findings reveal that no significant difference was found between boys and girls in their Mathematical Ability and General Intelligence. But significant difference was found between Ashrama School and Normal Day schools students in Mathematical Ability, but not in General Intelligence. And positive correlation was found between Mathematical Ability and General Intelligence among VII standard Jenukuruba students.

Keywords: Jenukuruba tribes, Mathematical ability, General intelligence.
