ab: Summary: Metacognition is the mind’s ability to monitor and control
itself or, in other words, the ability to know about our knowing. In
mathematics education, the importance of the investigation of
students’ metacognition during their mathematical activity is focused
on the aerea of mathematical problem solving. This study investigates
the spontaneous emergence of the metacognitive functions of control and
monitoring during the solving of different types of mathematical
problems with fifth grade students. We used the “think aloud" method
on a group of ten year old students and the results showed that
metacognitive strategies were used by the students so as the
metacognitive functions of control and monitoring to be achieved.
