Student’s mental models in this study was built through model-based learning with multiple representations.

The results showed that (1) After learning by using multiple representations strategy, mental models abilities of students becomes higher, which is located at the level of intermediate-3; (2) Multiple representation strategies give a high influence to the improvement of the students' mental models to the concept of atomic structure. These findings indicate that learning by multiple representations strategy could been alternative strategy in the teaching of chemistry to solve problems creatively, particularly concepts related to the phenomenon of sub-microscopic, macroscopic and symbolic.
