    THE EFFECT OF NON-SCIENCE STUDENTS META-COGNITIVE AWARENESS ON THEIR PERFORMANCE IN MATHEMATICS
    Silas A Ihedioha

    In this study, we examined the impact of meta-cognitive awareness of students on their performance in mathematics. One thousand six hundred and sixty (1660-967 male and 693 female) non-science students of senior secondary classes one, two and three (SS1, SS2 and SS3) from Government Secondary Schools in Bwari area council, federal capital territory Abuja, Nigeria participated in the study. Meta-cognitive awareness was measured using inventory, while performance of the students was measured with the help of researcher made test in the subject of mathematics. The overall mean score of female students on the test and MAI was greater than male students. The results of correlation analysis indicated that meta-cognitive awareness was significantly correlated with the performance of students. Among the recommendations are that; proper meta-cognitive strategies may be used by the mathematics teachers as it has significant impact on students performance. Furthermore, students may be encouraged to use meta-cognitive strategies as it has significantly correlated with students’ performance. The study was delimited to secondary school non-science students using the subject of mathematics and was a correlation study based on quantitative data therefore a study may be conducted on other subjects and a larger group of students.
