Abstract

This study aims to see whether there is a relationship between student learning motivation with students' creative thinking skills. This research is a survey research using a qualitative approach. The subjects of this study were 34 high school students. The instruments used in data collection were tests of creative thinking skills, motivational questionnaires, and interview guides. The results showed that there is a relationship between students who have high motivation, creative thinking skills are also high, and vice versa. Data obtained that 5.9% of students who have high motivation, 32.4% of students have moderate motivation, 58.8% of students who have low motivation, and 2.94% of students who have very low motivation. While students' creative thinking skills found 29.4% of students in the fluency stage, 35.3% of students at the flexibility stage, and 23.5% of students at the Novelty stage in solving math problems were given. So, it can be concluded the need for efforts made by the teacher is to design a Math Teaching Kit that can facilitate students' motivation and creative thinking skills.
