Abstract

This exploratory study, utilizing a general strategy, SPIDER, and two types of computerbased instruction (CBI) programs developed by the researcher, examined the effects of explicit strategies instruction on 105 sixth-grade students' attitudes toward mathematics problem-solving. An attitude survey was administered to investigate their attitude change toward mathematics problem-solving and the CBI program which they received. The findings indicated that students who were exposed to the CBI program either with or without explicit strategies instruction developed more positive attitudes toward mathematics problem-solving. Importantly, some students in the experimental group showed increased self-confidence toward mathematics problemsolving and self-esteem, whereas such comments were not observed from students in the CBI control group.
