Abstract

This study was aimed at finding out: 1) the difference in mathematical problem solving
ability between the students facilitated with problem based teaching model and those
facilitated with direct teaching model when prior knowledge is controlled 2) the effect
of metacognitive ability on mathematical problem solving of the students when prior
knowledge is controlled, and 3) the interaction effect between teaching model and
metacognitive ability on mathematical problem solving ability when prior knowledge is
controlled. This study used a quasi-experimental design by measuring two factors in
the 2 x 2 factorial pretes-posttest nonequivalent control group design. Ther sample
consisted of 126 students who were divided into 4 groups. The data were collected
using mathematical problem solving test and metacognitive questionnaire. Each
instrument has been verified both theoretically and empirically. The data were analyzed
using Anacova. The results showed that 1) the highest mathematical problem solving
ability was achieved by the high metacognitive ability group facilited with problem-based
teaching model, 2) when prior knowledge was controlled there was a significant
diference in mathematical problem solving ability between the students facilitated
with problem-based teaching model and those facilitated with direct teaching
model , 3)when prior knowledge was controlled there was a significant difference in
metacognitive ability on mathematical problem solving ability, 4) when prior knowledge
was controlled there was an interaction effect between teaching model and
metacognitive ability on problem solving ability
