This type of research includes qualitative descriptive research, with 6 research subjects as representatives of the very high, high, and moderate learning concentration groups. The instruments used in this study were a learning concentration questionnaire, mathematics HOTS questions, and interview guidelines. The data from the learning concentration questionnaire were analyzed using a Likert Scale, the data from the creative thinking ability test were analyzed based on the components of creative thinking.
