    Lioe, Ho and Hedberg describe the metacognitive behaviours of students as they solve open-ended mathematical problems. Using Artzt and Armour-Thomas’s framework, they examine both the regulation patterns and the cooperative levels of the students’ problem-solving techniques. They suggest a redesigned pedagogy that encourages more non-routine and open-ended problems to enhance critical thinking and further develop metacognitive skills.
