Abstract

Learning mathematical is believed to enhance student’s creative thinking. Problem posing can be a form of training in creative thinking. Problem posing requires that the student be creative and use the mathematical knowledge that has been obtained to connect several concepts. Differences context of the contextual problem shows that mathematics can be applied in various problems in everyday life. The sample was the students of VIIIA class of the SMP Al Islamiyah. All students had to complete a test which was posing mathematical problem with different context. Based on problem posing test, students are group into four categories. The categories are personal, societal, occupational, and scientific context. In order to find out the students’ creativity thinking, an analysis of problem posing test based on fluency, flexibility, novelty, and categorized based on creative thinking level (CTL). The results showed that CTL 2’s student met novelty in personal context, CTL 1’s student met fluency in societal context, CTL 3’s student met fluency and flexibility in occupational context, while CTL 4’s student met all components in scientific context. The results are affected by students’ familiarity context. The findings of this study, student’s problem posing creativity are depends on their familiarity in context that related to their real-life.
