Problem solving behavior play an important role for any student because problem solving behavior can given provided description of the student's behavior during the process of solving the mathematics problem. This study investigate student problem solving behavior when solving the negative integers problems. Subjects in this study were the 7th grade students of SMPN 2 Bangkalan, consists of 12 girls and 15 boys. All students were given mathematical ability test and three questions of word problem test that was related to addition and subtraction of negative integers. Three subjects were volunteerly selected with different mathematics ability namely high, medium and low mathematic ability for deep interview of mathematical problem solving behavior in solving negative integers. The results of this study assessed that the behavior of problem solving of a subject with high ability include the Meaning-Based Approach-justification (MBA-j) category. Behavior of subject with medium categorized as Direct Translation Approach-proficient (DTA-p), and the behavior of subject with low ability is included in the category of Direct Translation Approach-not proficient (DTA-p)
