The purpose of this study was to explore the mathematical creative thinking of elementary school students in a gender perspective. This study uses a qualitative descriptive research method. The study was conducted in one of the Islamic Madrasah (MI) in the District of East Banjarmasin, Banjarmasin City. The subjects were students of class VA and class VB who fulfilled at least one aspect of mathematical creative thinking. The results found that the mathematical creative thinking abilities of male and female students did not show significant differences, especially in the aspects of fluency, flexibility, and originality. The only difference that appears lies in one of the indicators of fluency, namely the ability to see errors or deficiencies in problem solving that have been given, where female students are more fluent than male students. Male students were unaware of the mistakes made in solving problems and were very optimistic about the answers given, while female students were more careful in seeing the mistakes they had made and trying to make improvements to get the correct solutions.
