The findings of the study indicated that there is a positive relationship between the total scores of children’s creativity and total scores of mathematic concepts and it is also revealed that children’s creativity skills predict their mathematic concepts. Besides, there is a positive relationship between mathematic concepts scores and the elaboration and abstractness of titles subtests of creativity and elaboration and abstractness of titles subtests of creativity predicts mathematic concepts. In addition, a positive relationship was found between total scores of creativity and number, comparison, direction-location, quantity and time-ordering subtests of mathematic concept; and it is found that direction-location subset predicts creativity scores.
