Abstract: 

This paper is to study about the influence of teaching problem-solving methods on the students’ self-awareness and their improvement in mathematics, considering the 5th grade primary school students. Reinforcing the students’ self-awareness and their development in math are the top two elements being discussed in this research. The sample of students being chosen is from a rural complex on the suburb of Torbat-e-Heidarie town. Once one control group and an experimental one (each consisting of 15 members) were selected, the experimental group was taught about methods of problem-solving during five 45-minute sessions. Then, both a pre-test (including 18 questions on math) and a post-test (including 18 questions on math and 80 questions on self-awareness) were given. The questions of two tests had the same level of difficulty. Having been analyzed by co-variance, the scores of the pre and post tests indicated that there was significant relationship between the pre and post tests. The mean score, in the post-test, has increased remarkably, comparing with the pre-test, in the experimental group; whereas, such an improvement has not been noticed among those of the control group. What being concluded from the mean scores in pre and post tests in the experimental group is that math problem-solving methods can have a great effect on reinforcing the students’ self-awareness as well as their improvement in math.
