- Mathematical problem, metacognitive activities, awareness and regulation
Metacognitive activities in mathematics problem solving are important in order to obtain the right solution. The implementation of metacognitive in solving problems indicates that the activities are supported by awareness and regulation of knowledge. For education students, the awareness and regulation of knowledge must underlie in all problem-solving process, not only to obtain the right solutions, but also to be the important basis to develop the strong understanding for their future students. The methods used in this research are (a) problem-solving with think-aloud method, (b) interview, and (c) observation during the problem-solving process. To ensure data validity, triangulation is done by combining the methods triangulation and times triangulation. The result of research shows that: (1) metacognitive activity conducted by students in solving contextual mathematical problem shows higher dynamics on implementation especially when compared with the formal mathematical problems, (2) the dynamics are shown in the diversity of metacognition activity types as well as the frequency of implementation of each metacognition activity, (3) one of the contributing factors is in the contextual mathematical problems, the subject must translate the contextual situation of the problem into mathematical model in order to use formal mathematical solving procedures.
