Abstract

This research aimed to explore and to describe characteristics of mental-modeling abilities (MMA) of prospective physics teachers based on physics problem-solving activity. Respondents of the research were two students from a selection test. The selected respondents were two categories (in their group) based on the test items, namely high and low category. The data of students' MMA were collected using specific physics problems where the students asked to represent and manipulate a certain representation. Results of the research showed that the students' MMA were influenced by four aspects, i.e.: knowledge, comprehension, the ability to make-connection of concepts, and experience in solving physics problems
