Abstract: This study examines the effects of teaching Linkage and Problem
Translating Skills on students’ problem-solving performance
and their learning of the five cognitive variables namely,
Concept Relatedness, Idea Association, Problem Translating
Skill, Non-Specific but Relevant Knowledge and Specific
Knowledge. Seventy three Grade 9 (Secondary 3) chemistry
students in Singapore were involved in this study. The topic
for the study was Mole Concept in chemistry. A quasiexperimental
design with pre- and post-test measurements was
employed. The explicit teaching of Linkage and Problem
Translating Skills (treatment), as a teaching problem-solving
strategy, and a traditional teaching method (control), were
respectively conducted. The results of the study showed that
the teaching of the linkage and problem translating skills had
improved the students’ problem-solving performance and
chemistry knowledge.
