Education is important for the advancement of peoples and countries, so it is necessary to take care of the learners by providing them with the skills and experience to face problems systematically based on sound thinking, by following appropriate teaching strategies. Therefore, this study aimed to use the school wide optimum mode (SWOM) strategy to reveal its effect on meta-cognitive thinking, and the effect of its employment in developing the mathematical thinking skills of gifted tenth-grade students. The analytical descriptive approach and the experimental approach were used. 84 gifted male and female students from the tenth grade were randomly selected. The data were analyzed using SPSS and evaluated according to the Rasch model. The study results showed that there were statistically significant differences between the average level of metacognitive thinking among gifted students who learned using SWOM strategy, and the average level of metacognitive thinking among students who learned traditionally, in favor of the students who learned using SWOM strategy. The results of the study also showed that there were statistically significant differences between the average scores of gifted students who learned using SWOM strategy, and the average scores of gifted students who learned traditionally in a mathematical thinking skills test, in favor of the students who learned using SWOM strategy.
