Generalization is a critical component of mathematical activity and has garnered increased attention in school mathematics at all levels. This study aims to determine the mathematical generalization ability of junior high school students on the material number pattern. This research is descriptive research with a qualitative approach. The study time was held in the even semester of the academic year 2022/2023. The subjects were students of SMP class VIII in Surakarta, as many as 28 students. Data collection methods used are test methods. Based on the results of data analysis showed the student^s mathematical generalization ability of SMP on number patterns were obtained: (1) 8 students (28%) had high mathematical generalization abilities, (2) 15 students (54%) had moderate abilities, and (3) 5 students (18%) had low abilities. These findings indicate that most students have good mathematical generalization abilities, but some still need further assistance in improving their abilities.
