Abstract

Metacognitive ability demonstrated in algebra word problem solving for primary school pupil is directly not applicable to more complicated and advanced problem solving such as electronic circuit. The aim of this study was to analyze the metacognitive process when solving basic problems concerning electronic circuit. In spite of mastering scientific knowledge and formula necessary for the solution,the lower performance group could not reach a higher score like higher performance group. We judged that this difference of performance must be due to the lack in metacognitive ability, especially the plan and the control and execution abilities. Thus, the importance of metacognitive ability,especially the plan ability was identified in the problem solving of basic electric circuit.
