The researcher examined students’ understanding of mathematical concepts and their ability to solve mathematical problems from writing solution in KWL chart. The researcher used the Know–Want–Learn Strategy as an instructional tool and as a model to solve mathematical problems. The research instruments were lesson plans, paper test and questionnaire. Statistical analysis was accomplished by percentage, mean and t-test for one sample. Based on the research findings, KWL Strategy was effective in developing the understanding of mathematical concepts, improving the students’ abilities to solve mathematical problems and promoting students’ mathematics achievement and positive attitudes for the students.
