Abstract: Mathematics classroom instruction is often characterized by approaches towards helping children gain mastery of skills and the development of concepts. Where metacognitive behaviours are concerned, little is known by practitioners how they are surfaced and what characterize these behaviours. This paper provides a scheme for checking the cognitive and metacognitive behaviours of a group of Primary 6 students. It examined excerpts of student-student and student-teacher interactions and discussed how the metacognitive behaviours were facilitated through a problem-based learning platform. The excerpts show evidence that children under such a problem-solving context do exercise different types of cognitive and metacognitive behaviours towards problem resolution.
