This study aims to determine how primary school eighth grade (14 years old) gifted students use knowledge types while solving problems. In the context, the data were collected through clinical interviews conducted with three gifted students. The students' voice recordings during problem solving and the solutions they wrote on the paper formed the data of the study. We found out that gifted students use more algorithmic knowledge and less schema knowledge in the problems that they had to solve. It can be said that the reduced usage of schema knowledge is likely to be a result of the fact that the gifted students produce different solutions using the field knowledge instead of remembering the schemas of similar problems they have encountered before.
