The structure of knowledge consists of a development scheme of facts. Mathematical activities are based on situations arising from experiences. This study aimed to describe the metacognition of students in solving problems using mathematics problem-based learning in Rejang Lebong ethnomathematics. This research was the preliminary phase of a research and development. This preliminary research was conducted through in-depth interviews, involved six students of a Junior High School in Rejang

The results showed that students could develop the ability to solve problems through self-reflection on planning, monitoring and evaluating the implementation of thinking processes. Students could combine pieces of information about the parts of the traditional house of Rejang Lebong that have similar properties to the mathematical 3-dimensional figures such as pyramids, prisms, rectangular prism, and cubes.
