Abstract

Recent research on cognitive development, memory, and reading indicates that much attention is being given to metacognition. There is also growing support for the view that purely cognitive analyses of mathematical performance are inadequate because they overlook metacognitive actions. This paper is intended as an introduction to metacognition and the role it plays in mathematical performance.
