the skill of representation has a very important role in the learning of mathematics that need to be owned by each student. This requires the ability of the mathematical representation in which students are able to describe, explain, or expand the idea of mathematics with a focus on the importance of forms. One aspect that can improve students' mathematical representation is to adopt a problem-based learning model. The author used problem based learning. One alternative solution that can solved problems in mathematics education is to improve the quality of learning through problem based learning (pbl). The main focus in efforts to improve the quality of learning is to position the teacher's role as designer and organizer of learning so that students have the opportunity to understand and make sense of mathematics through learning activities. Problem based learning will make the learning process more interesting for students, because students can share their ideas about the problem to be teachers give them. Problem based learning is a better way for the students and the teacher rather than the conventional ways to increase the representation and problem-solving skills. Each student is certain to have behaviour and characteristics tend to differ. In the study, the condition is important to note because by identifying the initial conditions of current students will follow the learning can provide important information for teachers in the selection of management strategy, which deals with how to organize teaching, especially the components of effective teaching strategies and in accordance with the characteristics of individual students so that learning will be more meaningful.
