Abstract


The students’ low ability in absorbing the information they got in the
learning activity. Another factor was students’ self-concept which not quite
good. Students’ self-concept can be declared through their selfunderstanding, as well as their self-confidence toward their ability to solve
their assignment or problem. This study was aimed to investigate the effect
of learning style toward the mathematical creative thinking ability, to
investigate the effect of self-concept toward mathematical creative thinking
ability, and to investigate the effect of learning style and self-concept toward
mathematical creative thinking ability. This study was one of the ex-post
facto with descriptive approach. Based on the aim of this study, this study
used regression analysis technique in the form of simple analysis regression
and double analysis regression. The result of this study showed that there
was an effect of learning style toward mathematical creative thinking ability,
there was an effect of self-concept toward mathematical creative thinking
ability, and there was an effect of learning style and self-concept toward
mathematical creative thinking ability

Keywords
