The mathematics was a difficult subject for students to study in senior high school. The purpose of this study was to determine the role of cognitive structure of students in understanding mathematical concepts. The Samples were randomly selected as many as 140 students from the whole students of senior high school at the Kota Bengkulu. There are two the latent variable. It was the ability to understanding math concepts and cognitive structure. There are two and seven indicator variables, respectively. The research instrument was a test of the ability to understanding mathematical concepts and tests of cognitive structures. The data from the two tests were analyzed using Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA). The results, the suitability of the whole model was good (i.e. model fit). Conclusion, there is a positive direct effect of cognitive structures on the ability to understanding mathematical concepts.
