This study aims to describe mathematical creative thinking based on categories of mathematical reasoning at high, moderate, and low levels, in geometry problems. This research is a qualitative descriptive study. The test was given to 30 twelfth graders at SMA Negeri 4 Surakarta. Based on the results, students are classified into students with high, medium and low reasoning abilities. Five subjects were selected by purposive sampling technique to analyze their creative thinking skills. The research instruments were tests and interviews. The aspects of creative thinking that were measured were fluency, flexibility and originality. Based on the results of the analysis, it was concluded that most students with high reasoning abilities were able to fulfill two aspects of creative thinking skills, students with moderate reasoning abilities only met one aspect of creative thinking skills and students with low reasoning abilities could not fulfill any aspect of creative thinking abilities. Students with high reasoning abilities could provide answers in different ways easily and were able to provide two different solving strategies. Students in the medium and low reasoning categories were only able to answer questions, but have not been able to fulfill all aspects of creative thinking well.
