In this research it was aimed to examine the effects of mathematics course that are supported by using songs on students' attitudes, achievements and multiple intelligences. In this study pre test-post test experimental design with control group and time series design were used. Sample of the study was composed of 286 third graders at primary schools. Scale of Attitudes towards Mathematics, Mathematics Achievement Tests for 5 units, Multiple Intelligences Inventory for Students were used as data collecting instruments. In this research meaningful differences in favor of experimental groups on attitudes towards and mathematics success in pre test post test comparisons were obtained. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
