Abstract

One of the causes of misconception in chemical studies is mental models. Mental models are students' initial abilities which consist of perception, understanding discourse, and imagination ability. This study aims: (1) to determine the level of student understanding in understanding the concept of atomic structure (2) to determine the profile of students' mental models (3) to determine the relationship between misconceptions and mental models of atomic structures. Determination of the sample was determined by purposive sampling technique totaling 34 students. The instrument of this study is a written test of mental models and misconceptions. Questions of mental models are divided into students 'perceptions, discourse comprehension questions, and questions of students' imagination abilities. Identification of the concept of understanding using CRI (Certainty of Response Index) is useful to determine students' level of trust. The results show that the number of students who experience misconceptions is more than the number of students who understand the concept and students who do not understand the concepts in atomic structure. The majority of students are at the level of perception level 4, while understanding discourse and understanding the imagination of students in the medium category. The results of the cross tabulation prove that the mental level of the higher student model has a lower misconception.
