Different strategies

I am currently deciding a title for my dissertation. It may look

"The comparsion of maths problem solving strategies and attitudes
towards mathematics of two students, one weak in maths and the other
strong in maths"

I think that they are using qualitative different approach.
The weak student emphasis procedural knowledge while the strong one
is good at conceptual knowledge. The weak one treat maths as something
dead, something to memorize while the strong one treat it as something
interesting, something to understand......

Do you have any opinion or can you tell me where can I find suitable

resources ?

Thanks very much
