Intuition is the best instructional method in mathematics education. Using different method such as intuition, it makes promote learning in particular mathematics. Researchers have tried that studied and applied intuition method in mathematical learning and teaching field in present research. Then it is indicated snapshots of intuitive method for calculus. Sixty eight students are selected of first grade girl students at high school. Means of scores are studied via One-Sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, test of homogeneity of variances, ANOVA and Scheffe. The findings have shown that mathematical problems solving through intuition will have positive effects on the performance of students. Therefore it can conclude that intuitive method can ease problem solving process for students and this method motivates to learn and solve the difficult problems.
