Abstract: Metacognifion is often regarded as a higher order thinking skill that benefits mainly higher achieving students. Weaker students, on the other hand, often encounter mathematics as a form of drill and practice exercise. It is no wonder that many weaker mathematics students become school dropouts and live to believe that mathematics is beyond the common folk. As we enter into the new knowledge-based economy, we need to raise the educational level of the masses - we need to seek breakthroughs. This paper takes a look at some strategies to promote the use and learning of metacognitive skills for weaker students.
