MORALES-MAURE, Luisa; GARCIA-MARIMON, Orlando; TORRES-RODRIGUEZ, Agustín  e  LEBRIJA-TREJOS, Analinnette. Cognitive Skills through the Cooperative Learning Strategy and Epistemological Development in Mathematics of Freshmen University Students. Form. Univ. [online]. 2018, vol.11, n.2, pp.45-56. ISSN 0718-5006.

This paper presents a field study, research-action, of descriptive type, which aims to demonstrate that the use of cooperative learning strategy, in the teaching and learning process, favors cognitive skills. The study is carried out with Panamanian university students, who constructed the new mathematical knowledge from the perspectives of the different members of the work groups, making it possible the learning of each member of the team. The educational experience allows us to observe the potential of the exchange and collective construction of learning, in the construction of useful and meaningful knowledge for the student, as well as the generation of positive and motivating environments suitable for a quality educational process. It is concluded that the students were able to understand and use the problem-solving strategy, ordering and organizing the mathematical information necessary to achieve results based on reflective thinking, as well as motivating and showing an active participation in the development of the didactic activities of the class.
