Abstract

Creative thinking process is the stage of creative thinking that includes the stage of synthesizing, generating, planning implementation, and applying ideas. Problem posing can be used to identify the process of students creative thinking. Problem posing is students process to make problem from given situation and solve it. Researcher used problem posing in free, semi-structure, and structured situations. This research is a qualitative descriptive research which designed to describe creative thinking process of male and female students in posing mathematical problem. Technique of data collection was carried out by giving mathematical problem posing test and interview. The results showed that (1) in free situation, in the stage of synthesizing ideas, male and female students could understand the information well. The stage of generating ideas, male and female students raised ideas from known information. The stage of planning implemetation of ideas, female students were more careful to make problem and when the stage of applying ideas, male students tended to be able to make different problems. (2) in a semi-structured situation, in the stage of synthesizing ideas, male and female students could understand the information well. The stage of generating ideas, male and female students raised ideas from known information. The stage of planning implementation of ideas, male students tended to find different ideas to make problems and when the stage of applying ideas of male students were less precise in solving problems. (3) in a structured situation, in the stage of synthesizing ideas, male and female students could understand the information well. The stage of generating ideas, male students could related to ideas with other concept. The stage of planning implementation of ideas, male and female students did not use different ideas to make a problems and when the stage of applying ideas, male students were less precise in solving problems.
