This study aims to: (1) describe the differences in mathematical problem solving ability among students who follow the learning with Creative Problem Solving Model (by named CPS) and follow the learning with conventional model. (2) To describe the difference of mathematical Self-Efficacy between students who follow the learning with CPS and who follow the learning with conventional model. (3) To describe the process of completion of answers made by students in solving problems about problem solving skills on learning model of CPS and conventional learning. This type of quasi experimental research. Population of all students of Senior High School (by named SMA) at Binjai. Sampling uses a cluster sampling technique. Population of all students of SMA at Binjai. Sample uses a cluster sampling technique. The XIPA-3 class (38 students) is taught with the CPS and the XIPA-2 class (38 students) is taught Conventional. The instruments used consisted of problem solving and mathematical communication test. The analysis used T-test. The result of the research shows that: (1) the problem solving ability of students who follow the learning of mathematics with CPS is better than those that get the learning with conventional model. (2) Self-Efficacy of students who follow the learning of mathematics with model CPS is better than those that get learning with conventional models. (3) The process of solving student answers with CPS better than conventional.
