The aim of the current research is to identify the effectiveness of the Cornell note-taking system in intelligent thinking among fifth-grade scientific students, and to achieve the goal of the research, the following zero hypothesis was formulated: (There is no statistically significant difference at the significance level ((0.05) between the average scores of the experimental group students who will study physics according to the Cornell note-taking system and the average scores of the control group students who will study physics according to the usual method in the intelligent thinking test).To verify the hypothesis of the research, the researchers adopted the experimental design with partial control for two equal groups (experimental and control) with a post-test in intelligent thinking. According to this experimental design, the researchers chose the research sample in a simple random assignment method, two study divisions with a size (60)female preparatory students for girls,by(30) female students for each division, to represent one of the experimental group and the other the control group, after excluding the female students who failed from both groups, and to ensure the internal safety of the experimental design, the two groups were rewarded in variables (chronological age in months, intelligence test for Otis Lennon, previous physical information test). With regard to the research tool, a 42-item intelligent thinking test (multiple choice) was prepared, and its psychometric properties were verified.The experiment was applied in the second semester of the academic year (2022-2023), and for a period of (11) weeks ((3 sessions per week for each group), and after the end of the experiment, the research tool was applied to the two groups, and the results were analyzed using the t-test equation for two independent samples of equal number. The results of the analysis showed that there are statistically significant differences between the two groups (experimental and control) in favor of the experimental group in the intelligent thinking test,and in light of the results of the research, the researchers came up with a set of conclusions, recommendations and proposals.
