Sally Roberts, Carla Tayeh

Abstract:
How metacognitive skills contribute to the teaching and learning of problem solving in mathematics. Teacher candidates kept metacognitive journals while solving math problems. Excerpts from the journals are used to show how the teacher candidates improved problem solving skills by becoming aware of their problem solving strengths and weaknesses.
