Abstract: This paper describes a strand of a larger project examining student mathematical problem solving (Hedberg, Wong, Ho, Lioe, & Tiong, 2005). The initial parts of the project studied the effectiveness of students’ metacognitive strategies as they solved problems in pairs. This follow-up study employed the Whimbey & Lochhead (1999) Thinker-Listener pair approach and one of the same pairs was selected to solve problems within this context. The protocols when the pair solved a similar problem in pre- and post-tests were transcribed and analysed using modified Artzt & Armour-Thomas’s (1992) framework classifying their cognitive and metacognitive thinking, and their performances were compared. The analysis revealed that within the Thinker-Listener context, they were more engaged in each other’s ideas, spent more time on metacognitive behaviours, and had higher regulatory behaviour. The results suggest that Thinker-Listener approach can be effectively extended on to a larger scale of pairs with longer periods of time to observe the effectiveness in developing students’ metacognitive strategies
