The Partnership for 21st Century Skills defines that critical thinking skills are one of the skills needed to prepare students in education and occupation. Students with a good level of critical thinking skills will solve problems with critical thinking steps, even though they are not perfect yet. This study aims to describe the eighth-grade student’s mathematical critical thinking skills based on gender. This research was qualitative descriptive. The subject was 8th-grade junior high school students in Surakarta. However, this article presents the data merely from two male subjects and two female subjects as gender representatives. The instrument was validated by three experts. The instrument was researcher, critical thinking skills tests, interview guides. The data were validated through a triangulation method by comparing the data of test results and interviews. Data were analyzed through data reduction, data presentation, and concluding. As the conclusion of this study, male students master critical thinking indicators, i.e., in the determination of actions due to their accurate thinking. On the other hand, female students are mature in critical thinking indicators, i.e., in making conclusions due to their decent thinking process of seeing reality.
