Abstract:Improving the metacognitive skills via celebrated Tensile Machine Simulation (TMS) is challenging in science and engineering education. The quest for developed model in designing educational curricula and methods for solving engineering problems metacognitively among education experts, teachers and specialists is never-ending. Enhancing problem solving efficiency that requires planning, analyses, design and implementation assisted by metacognition is the key issue. We design, develop and evaluate engineering simulation using TMS to identify the effectiveness of metacognitive skills on mechanical engineering students of Iraq as test sample. The influence of TMS on metacognitive acquisition skills through self-planning, self-monitoring and self-evaluating are determined. The performance of the proposed model is design simulation via Microsoft studio 2010 and the data are analyzed by SPSS. From the results, it was discovered that TMS has huge impact on metacognitive skills acquisition. Metacognitive skills can help students and learners solve analytical and technical problems as competent as possible.
