This paper presents a study of cognitive structure of critical thinking in constructing a conic section for Indonesian students. Context of this research is using Piaget's theory of cognitive development when students docritical thinking. Revolutionary Piaget's theory of cognitive development of children has focused on the development of logic. When someone thinks logically, it means that he/she is in a higher-level. This kind of thinking is a high level of critical thinking. In order to get the schemata of students' critical thinking, the students are given open mathematical problems. The approach is a qualitative exploration of students? performance in doing problem-solving. In order to see their thinking processes, it is used a think-load, which is expected to be an overview of the activity of students? thinking. Furthermore, critical thinking is observed through as simulation and accommodation of Piaget's theory, so the cognitive structure of students' schemata can be illustrate. The results showed that there are three characteristics of critical thinking process, (1) The existence of a sub-structure perfection of thought that will be used in generalizing the solution, (2) an ability to reflect toward the problem fully, and(3) The existence of consciousness to explore solutions, although students do not have the ability to explore the possibility of another solution
