Abstract

The aim of current research is to study the effects of private speech on math problem solving performance of fifth grade male students. To this end, fivemale elementary schools were selected from education district 3 in Isfahan, Iran using cluster random sampling method. A test including 12 math problems were given to fifth grade students of selected schools (n = 168) and those who used private speech during problem solving were identified (n= 35). The average of scores of two groups (with and without private speech) in math tests was compared with T-test.There was no significant difference among two groups(p> 0.05).
