Abstract

The objective of this study is to describe the skills of creative thinking in terms of logical mathematical
intelligence, by qualitative approach. Instruments used were questionnaires, tests, documentation, and
interviews. 54 students of class XI, MA Al-Misri were given a type of multiple intelligences
questionnaire. 14 students who have logical mathematical intelligence predominant chosen as the subject
of research. The first test was given to determine the logical mathematical intelligence, then analyzed. The
analysis showed consecutively 12; 8; 5; 3; and 1 subject(s) who has the characteristics classify, compare,
perform basic numerical operations, deductive and inductive reasoning, and hypothesis formation and
testing. Next, each subject was chosen for each those characteristics. Open ended question was given for
the second test to describe student’s creative thinking skills. Based on data analysis, it was found that the
subjects with the characteristics classify, compare, perform basic numerical operations, deductive and
inductive reasoning generally fulfill the components of creative thinking: problems sensitivity, fluency,
flexibility and elaboration; and subject with characteristics of hypothesis formation and testing fulfill the
four components later and novelty
