Abstract

In this study, it was examined that in what level reflective thinking towards problem solving skills and metacognitive awareness explained maths course achievements of the students and the relationships among these variables were studied. Relational survey model was applied. The study included 412 seventh grade students from two different secondary schools within each of the three central districts located in Ankara. In this study, “Reflective Thinking Skill Scale to Problem Solving (RTSSPS)” and “The Metacognitive Awareness Inventory for Children (MAI-C)” and the scores of “Maths Course Achievement” were used. “Pearson Momentler Correlation Coefficient” and “Multiple Linear Regression Analysis” were used in the correlational and regression analysis. It was determined that there was a strong positive significant correlation between students’ maths achievement, reflective thinking towards problem solving and metacognitive awareness. It was also determined that there was a strong positive significant correlation between reflective thinking towards problem solving and metacognitive awareness.
