839 Words4 Pages
Metacognition is classified into three components: 1. Metacognitive knowledge (also called metacognitive awareness) is what individuals know about themselves and others as cognitive processors. 2. Metacognitive regulation is the regulation of cognition and learning experiences through a set of activities that help people control their learning. 3. Metacognitive experiences are those experiences that have something to do with the current, on-going cognitive endeavour. Metacognition refers to a level of thinking that involves active control over the process of thinking that is used in learning situations. Planning the way to approach a learning task, monitoring comprehension, and evaluating the progress towards the completion of a task: these…show more content…
1995). According to Ibrahim (1997), there are two main procedural steps in problem solving: i) transforming the problem into mathematical sentences; and ii) computation of the operational involved in the mathematical sentences. Difficulties faced among students were more noticeable during the first procedural step in solving problem compared to the other. Polya (1981) stated that problem-solving is a process starting from the minute students is faced with the problem until the end when the problem is solved. There are many problem solving…show more content…
A research conducted by Saher Mandaci Sahin and Fatma Kendir on 2013, University of Nigde, Turki, to identify the effect of using metacognitive strategies for solving geometry problems on students’ achievement and attitude. That research is relevant since using the same strategies of teaching and learning that is metacognitive strategies. The different between this research with the research conducted by Saher Mandaci Sahin and Fatma Kendir is the mathematics topic and level education of population to be used. The focus of this research is student’s metacognitive process in solving trigonometric problem. This relevant research helps researcher to know about metacognitive strategies lies in mathematics classroom. (Sahin & Kendir, 2013) 2. A research conducted by Ana Kuzle, University Paderborn, that describes the problem solving behaviour of two pre-service teachers as they worked individually on three non-routine geometry problem. That research is relevant since using the same research methodology that is qualitative research. The difference between this researches with the research conducted by Ana Kuzle is choosing the participants and also the data analyse. (Kuzle,
