Creative thinking has a vital role in generating innovations, especially in the millennial era as it is today. The habit of creative thinking needs to be applied primarily in the field of education. This study aims to describe the level of creative thinking of students in solving story problems on algebraic material. This type of research is descriptive qualitative research. This research was conducted on high school students, with a population of 120 tenth grade students. Research subjects by taking four selected subjects in tenth-grade mathematics and science groups who can think creative that is different from the creative category, quite creative, and less creative. The level of creative thinking of students is obtained through tests that include indicators of creative thinking, namely: fluency, flexibility, sensitivity, and elaboration. The second stage is a four-subject interview test based on the results of tests that have been carried out. In the next step, the researcher analyzed the results of the two tests according to the ability of creative thinking of each subject. The results of this study are descriptions of the level of students’ creative thinking abilities in solving problems in algebra material. In conclusion, not all levels of students’ creative thinking are achieved well. This result is influenced by the obstacles that might be encountered when the creative thinking process takes place.
