## Abstract

This paper is aimed at analyzing characteristics of thinking processes of the elementary schools students with high capability in mathematics in understanding mathematics problems. Two fifth year elementary school students, male and female, with good capability were chosen as the subject. Data were collected through in-depth interviews and task analysis based on the task of mathematical solution. Data credibility were made by continuous and consistent observations and perseverance improvement, time triangulation and member check. Data were analyzed using a flow model covering data reduction, data presentation and conclusion drawing. The results showed that there is a similarity in the thinking process of female and male students in understanding problems, namely constructing relation in and among elements of what is known, what is asked, giving meaning to important words and phrases, and the use of symbol. For female students, relation is also constructed using contraction, although there is difference of the relation constructed in and among the elements. The relation the female students constructed is richer than that of male students. Characteristics of their thinking processes are grouped into situation and established models.
