Abstract

This descriptive research investigated the level of creative thinking skills of seventh- grade students in SMP Satap Negeri 6 Pammana in solving open-ended problems on the topic of algebra. The skills addressed are abilities in looking or thinking about extraordinary or unusual things, combining information that looks unrelated, and generating new ideas or solutions that showed flexibility, elaboration, fluency, and originality. Thirty students participated in the study. The questions used were five open-ended problems on the topic of algebra. The instrument used to examine students’ creative thinking skills was developed by Bosch, consisting of 4 criteria and five response choices. The scores for every item ranged from 0 to 4. Based on data analysis, there were 16 (53,33%) and 3 (10%) students who were in the level of very creative (TKBK 4) and creative (TKBK 3), respectively. As for the category of quite creative (TKBK 2), there were 6 (20%) students. The rest of the participants’ scores fell in the two last categories: less creative (TKBK 1) and not creative (TKBK 0). There were 2(6,67%) in the former category and 3 (10%) students in the latter.
