This paper presents the data for 6 students who participated in a study that investigated the use of the metacogntive tools of concept maps and vee diagrams in learning and solving problems for selected mathematics topics. The six students used the tools to learn about new mathematics topics. Initially, students struggled to understand their new topics and the tools. However, with independent research and progressively mapping their findings on concept maps and vee diagrams, and with critiques and feedback from others, students eventually developed enhanced and deeper understandings of their chosen topics.
