Overview

 

Interdisciplinarity has become increasingly important for emergent professions of the 21st century yet there is a dearth of systematic studies aimed at implementing it in the school and university curricula. The Mathematics and its Connections to the Arts and Sciences (MACAS ) group places Mathematics as a vehicle through which deep and meaningful connections can be forged with the Arts and the Sciences and as a means of promoting interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary thinking traits amongst students.... This book offers new insights about late adolescent students’ understanding of their metacognitive knowledge regarding learning and problem solving. It offers a description of a research project conducted to obtain a better understanding of the students’ abilities and views with respect to what their metacognitive knowledge encompasses, and how they attempt to develop, apply, and improve this knowledge regarding learning and the solving of mathematical and first‐language problems in a more effective way of their own accord. Specifically, the results of the studies of the research project enable us to understand metacognitive knowledge better, in that it provides explanations about the students’ development of this knowledge across domains. This book offers further details in terms of providing evidence for theory building regarding metacognitive knowledge.
