The research subjects were seventh grade students of SMP Paramarta 1 Seputih Banyak in the academic yearof 2018 / 2019. The instruments used are observation sheets, interview sheets, validity assessment instruments, trial sheets, and reflective thinking test instruments. The results of this study are (a) Guided Discovery learning has valid and practical criteria and (b) Average N-Gain scores mathematically reflective thinking of students after given Guided Discovery learning bigger than the average N-Gain score of mathematical reflective thinking skills of students who following conventional learning.
