- mathematics belief, metacognitive strategy
This research aimed to see the relationship between mathematics belief and the use of metacognitive strategy in 3rd-grade elementary students tasked with completing arithmetics word problem. Based on a phenomenon that Indonesian students' performance is still lower than the other countries, this study was also based on the theory that metacognitive strategy and mathematics belief had an impact on arithmetics word problem completion. Ninety-six 3rd grade elementary school students in Depok, West Java, participated in this study. Knowledge Monitoring Assessment (KMA) was used as an instrument to measure mathematics belief and the Think-Aloud technique was used to measure metacognitive strategy. Pearson-correlation statistical analysis was used to see a relationship between mathematics belief and metacognitive strategy. The result showed that there was a positive and significant relationship between mathematics belief and metacognitive strategy (r = 0,30, p > 0,01, one-tailed). This meant that students who had a better belief in their competence in mathematics would more likely use better metacognitive strategy.
