Abstract

Various studies have indicated that many students in the world faced difficulties in solving word problems especially when the problems involve fractions. A study conducted on Malaysian students shows that they too are facing similar problems. This paper describes the results of the study, its analysis and its implication on the design of a cognitive tool to solve fraction word problems. With multimedia technology today, we believe that the development of a multimedia-based cognitive tool can help improve students ' performance in solving word problems.
