The primary data of this study is the students’ answers to the test and interviews. The result of this study showed that: (1) the level of students’ creative thinking through visual learning style was in level 4 (very creative), especially in solving Math problem of Scalene Triangle, (2) the level of students’ creative thinking through auditory learning style was in the level 3 (creative), especially in solving Math problem of Scalene Triangle, and (3) the level of students’ creative thinking through kinesthetic learning style was in the level 1 (poor creative), especially in solving Math problem of Scalene Triangle.
