Objectives : To determine the relationships of Multiple Intelligences of College Freshmen to their Mathematics Performance among 68 first-year College students taking up Bachelor of Secondary Education major in Mathematics of Northern Iloilo Polytechnic State College (NIPSC). Methods: The researcher used descriptive-correlational design in this study. A survey utilizing the researcher-made checklist determined the relationship of multiple intelligences as the main variables used in the research. Findings/application: The results showed more females enrolled in the programs than males in the academic year 2015-2016. Most of these students were from different barangays in northern Iloilo. Out of the 9 MI, most of the students possessed existentialist intelligence because they wanted to become teachers in the future. However, the majority of these 68 respondents failed the entrance examination. But out of four campuses, Barotac Viejo Campus students have a higher performance in Mathematic class. But no significant difference between sex and MI. Furthermore, the results also exposed that if students excelled in Mathematics in high school, they were too good in college. Also, most of the respondents were good in linguistic intelligence. During problem-solving activities, most of them can read, analyze, and comprehend verbal instructions. To enhance the performance of students enrolled in BSEd major Mathematics in four campuses creates a plan to help teachers in junior high schools and senior high schools like teaching strategy and interactive approaches.
