    Master’s degree, titled Mathematical Problem Solving Strategies among Year 5 Gifted Students of the Primary School composes of theoretical and empirical part. In the theoretical part gifted students are presented through different authors, how they are recognised and characterised. Mathematically gifted students were discussed in further detail and mathematical problems were introduced, broken into several types, and different solving strategies were discussed. In the empirical part, through the analysis of three different mathematical problems, solved by both mathematically gifted and nongifted students, who have excellent grade in mathematics, we concluded that there was no big difference between the groups, although gifted students tended to be more successful at solving presented problems. With analysis of questionnaire we concluded that solving mathematical problems seems interesting and fun (for majority) of gifted and non-gifted students; although both groups considered the problems challenging. Presented conclusions are presented with contextual analysis and are furthermore supported by graphical material and with actual students examples.
