Abstract

This study are to understand the current state of the students' meta-cognition, their attitude toward problem solving ability and to explore the relationship between the two. Using descriptive statistics, t-tests, Pearson product-moment correlation, and regression analysis, there was a moderate correlation (r = .531, p<.05*) between the subjects' meta-cognition and problem solving ability. Using simple regression analysis, the findings showed that meta-cognition had significant predictive power on problem solving ability.
