It is important for instructional technology designers and researchers to study and understand how cognitive tools can be built and are used so that they can assist in students' learning. In this study, we examined the use of cognitive tools built in a hypermedia problem-based learning environment for sixth graders. We believe that the complexities of a problem-based learning environment call for the need to build in cognitive tools, especially when its targeted learners are sixth graders. We analyzed the tool use patterns by sixth graders to understand in what way the built-in cognitive tools provide support to students' problem-solving process.
