Mathematical achievement of the students in Indonesia is low and it can be seen in PISA and TIMSS. Mathematics is one of the subjects that require higher order thinking skills, such as metacognition. This research was conducted to find out the correlation between attitudes toward mathematics and metacognitive strategies in completing mathematics word problems among 3rd elementary students. The measurement of attitudes toward mathematics was using adapted Mathematics and Me Survey (M & MS). The think-aloud method using to measure students metacognitive strategies. Respondents were obtained from two Depok Primary Schools with 89 respondents with an age range of 8 to 10 years. The results showed a positive significant relationship between attitudes toward mathematics and metacognitive strategies (r = 0.229, p <0.05, one-tailed). From that result, it can be concluded that the more positive the students’ attitudes toward mathematics, the more metacognitive strategies used in solving math word problems.
