Creativity-based Learning (CBL) is useful in developing several important skills for mathematics students. This research aimed to: a) develop the CBL integrated with Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPCK) or TPCK-CBL Model to teach mathematics for Grade 7 students; and 2) examine students’ development of academic achievement and creative thinking in the Ordered Pairs topic after learning with the TPCK-CBL Model. The mixed-methods research design was employed in this study. The researchers collected both quantitative and qualitative data from 70 Grade 7 students, who enrolled in the first semester of the 2022 academic year at Thungsong School, Nakhonsithammarat province, Thailand. The TPCK-CBL Model and its associated lesson plans, the Learning Achievement Test and the Creative Thinking Test was validated by five experts. The results yielded that the TPCK-CBL Model could foster Grade 7 students’ academic achievement and creative thinking. Through the engagement in open-ended tasks, students were encouraged to think critically, generate innovative solutions for mathematical problems from multiple perspectives. The use of technology in TPCK further supported the development of students’ digital literacy and enabled them to utilize digital tools and software to further explore mathematical conceptions in fruitful ways. This study highlighted the significance in incorporating TPCK with CBL for teaching mathematics for Grade 7 students in Thailand. Through TPACK-CBL Model, mathematics educators can create learning environment that truly nurtures students’ academic achievement and creative thinking. Implementing TPCK-CBL not only enhances students’ mathematical knowledge but also equips them with the essential skills needed for the current digital age.
