In this study, an attempt was made to validate some of the cognitive variables that have been found to be important predictors of problem solving success. A particular teaching strategy was developed for the topic of Mole Concept to train the students in some problem-solving skills, namely: linkage and problem translating skill, in addition to teaching them the content knowledge of the topic. The feasibility of explicitly teaching the students the problem-solving skills as well as the effects of this teaching on the students' problem-solving performance and acquisition of the skills concerned were also examined.
