In this lesson, our instructor Charles Schallhorn defines intelligence, goes over key terms about intelligence, and shows how IQ tests determine their scores, something that will definitely appear on the AP exam. Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences, more intelligence tests, and review questions are also discussed in the video.
