The study sample consisted of (104) students / teachers of open education systems in Jordan for the2015 -2016 academic year. In order to answer the questions of study, the researcher developed a scale of geometric thinking, it is validity and reliability has been verified. The results of the study showed a low level of geometrical thinking among students receiving blended learning. The percentage of students in the first level (visual) (51%), the percentage of students in the second level (descriptive) (15%), and the percentage of students in the third level (logical) (3%). Also it showed differences in the levels of geometric thinking between males and females in favor of males, as well as differences in the level of geometrical thinking between students from the scientific stream and students from the literary stream in favor of scientific stream.
