ABSTRACT

Metacognitive Regulation Strategies (MRS) and Activity Based-Learning (ABL) is a learning strategy that is significant and have proven to effect student’s mastery. The student’s ability to plan, monitor and evaluate the learning process and their thinking process, known as metacognitive regulation, can strengthen the understanding. ABL also has significant positive effects on students’ level of interest, engagement and performance. Through the activity, students developed their communication skills, self-regulation and the learned knowledge has positive effects on retention due to learning by doing and having fun while learning. In fact, Best Seller Mathematical Learning Activities (Apm-BS) merges principles and strategies from the activity during learning and metacognitive regulation skills. This conceptual paper tries to discuss the potential of merging activity based learning and metacognitive regulation learning strategies as an intervention to the problem of mastering the mathematical concept of students. This activity was designed and created based on the basic of the concept of entrepreneurship, which involves buying and selling activities among students during the learning process. Students communicate and interact with peer to practice the metacognitive behavior and improve metacognitive skills in order to enhance their understanding.
