Abstract
The purpose of this study was to analyze and find out the difficulties of mathematical creative thinking processes in problem-based learning. This research is a descriptive qualitative study. The subjects of this study were students of SMP Negeri 13 Medan in class VIII-5 totaling 32 students. The data analysis method used is the Miles and Huberman Method. The results of this study indicate that the analysis of the difficulties of mathematical creative thinking processes in problem based learning, namely: 1) In the very high category, students have no difficulties. 2) In the high category, students experience difficulties in applying ideas to the elaboration indicator. 3) In the medium category, students have difficulty planning the application of ideas and applying ideas to indicators of flexibility, authenticity and elaboration. 4) At the level of students' ability, students have difficulty planning the application of ideas and the difficulty of applying ideas to the indicators of fluency, having difficulty synthesizing ideas, planning the application of ideas and applying ideas to indicators of flexibility, authenticity and elaboration. 5) In the very low category, students have difficulty synthesizing ideas, planning the application of ideas and applying ideas to indicators of fluency, flexibility, authenticity and elaboration.
