This paper explains the role of mental models in understanding the concept of physics vector. This research type is empirical research by analyzing data from individual thinking and interview with 2 high school students. Each student represents each category (High and Low). Subjects in this study were selected based on Respondent Selection Test (TSR) of vector material. After obtaining 2 respondents, then they completed a diagnostic test to measure their Mental-Modeling Ability. The result of this study describes the stages of students in solving problems in vector material. The outcome of this study shows that the high category subjects start the stage by making a diagram that leads to the completion of the solution, the medium category is making a diagram at the end of the stage, the low category starts the problem solving without making a diagram. Students’ characteristics in solving the vector problems can provide an overview, the right learning model in teaching vector concepts. All categories have not been able to link information obtained at each step of completion.
