The purpose of the current study is to search the relationship among metacognition, reasoning ability, and the mathematical problem solving performance. Another purpose is to search the role of metacognition and reasoning ability on the prediction of mathematical problem solving performance. For this, the participants were the 578 ninth grade students who are at public Anatolian high schools in Izmir. There were three instruments. The first instrument was conducted for measuring metacognition; namely junior Metacognitive Awareness Inventory (jMAI). The second instrument was conducted for measuring reasoning ability; namely the Test of Logical Thinking (TOLT). The final instrument was conducted for measuring mathematical problem solving performance namely Mathematical Problem Solving Instrument. The design of the study is correlational model. For data analysis standard multiple linear regression was conducted. According to the v results of the study, there was a significant, strong, and positive correlation between metacognition and mathematical problem solving performance. There was a significant, strong, and positive correlation between reasoning ability and mathematical problem solving performance. Also there was a significant, strong, and positive correlation between metacognition and reasoning ability. Moreover metacognition and reasoning ability significantly predicted the mathematical problem solving performance of the students. The metacognition and reasoning ability predicted and explained 54 percent of the mathematical problem solving performance of the students. Based on the result of the study, the relationship among metacognition, reasoning ability, and problem solving should be emphasized in the classrooms. Moreover, metacognition and reasoning ability should not be perceived as independent from problem solving.

The influence of the context of conditional probability problems on probabilistic thinking: A case study with teacher candidates
Olgun, Beyza; Işıksal Bostan, Mine (2019-12-21)
This study investigates the influence of the context of conditional probability problems on probabilistic thinking processes of mathematics teacher candidates. Data were collected from four mathematics teacher candidates through semi-structured clinical interviews. Teacher candidates were expected to solve and explain three conditional probability problems, which were selected based on specific contexts. The findings revealed that, when the context is related to a social issue such as health or justice, tha...
Investigation of the effects of problem solving instruction on fifth grade students’ mathematical problem solving performance
Kanar, Özge; Bulut, Safure; Department of Mathematics Education (2022-2-04)
The primary purpose of the current study was to investigate the effects of problem solving instruction on 5th grade students’ mathematical problem solving performance across the three time periods. Also, the other aim of the study was to examine the relationship between 5th grade students’ mathematical problem solving performance scores of Well-Structured Problem Solving Tests (WSPST) and Ill-Structured Problem Solving Tests (ISPST) after the problem solving instruction. In addition to that, exploring s...
A structural model on 7th grade students’ motivational beliefs, use of self-regulation strategies, and mathematics achievement
Kayan Fadlelmula, Fatma; Çakıroğlu, Erdinç; Sungur, Semra; Department of Elementary Education (2011)
This study was conducted in an attempt to integrate a number of cognitive, motivational and behavioral factors in elementary mathematics education, and to develop a theoretical model that explains the direct and indirect relationships among these concepts and their underlying dimensions. In particular, it was intended to examine the interrelationships among students’ achievement goal orientations, perception of classroom goal structure, self-efficacy, use of self-regulatory strategies, and academic achievem...

An analysis of teacher background indices and their relation to the eighth grade Turkish students’ mathematics achievement in TIMSS 2007
Mihyap, Kübra; Berberoğlu, Halil Giray; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2011)
The purpose of this study is to investigate teacher background indices and their relation to mathematics achievement. For this purpose, the data collected from 146 Turkish mathematics teachers and 4498 8th grade Turkish students with the instruments - mathematics teacher background questionnaire and mathematics achievement test in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS 2007) were analyzed by using the Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation. The teacher background indices, constructed...
