Group metacognition during mathematical problem solving
Chalmers, Christina (2009) Group metacognition during mathematical problem solving. In Proceedings of : MERGA 32 Conference : Crossing Divides, 3-7 July 2009, Wellingon, New Zealand.
Although various studies have shown that groups are more productive than individuals in complex mathematical problem solving, not all groups work together cooperatively. This review highlights that addressing organisational and cognitive factors to help scaffold group mathematical problem solving is necessary but not sufficient. Successful group problem solving also needs to incorporate metacognitive factors in order for groups to reflect on the organisational and cognitive factors influencing their group mathematical problem solving.
