Abstract

Creativity has been excessively studied in various area of knowledge. In mathematics, creativity is considered one of ability that is required especially in problem solving. It is because mathematics problems are continuously changing in term of complexity and novelty. On the other hand, creativity is interrelated with individual sources. This study explores introverted primary school students’ creativity in mathematics problem solving based on gender differences. Data were collected by utilizing one mathematics problem and interview. There were two 5 th grade primary school students (one male and one female) that participated in this research. There are three creativity criteria that is assessed namely fluency, flexibility, and novelty. Finding showed that introverted male student fulfilled three of creativity criteria meanwhile introverted female student fulfilled two criteria of creativity namely fluency and flexibility. In process of problem solving, both subjects utilized external condition, intellectual knowledge and intuition. The flexibility of subjects is different in some way. Introverted male student tended to use as much as strategies. Introverted female student tend to modify the strategy to produce other solutions. Moreover, the difference was also found in the way how they used intuition in solving the given problem.
