Cognitive modelling has psychological goals to analyse of cognitive processes during modeling processes and understanding of these cognitive processes and to promote of mathematical thinking processes by using models as mental images or even physical pictures or by emphasizing modeling as mental process such as abstraction or generalization. Using representational form is one of the important component of cognitive modeling. This cognitive process refers to the ability of understanding and expressing mathematical content in different ways. This research use sample item of using representational form. The total of research subject is 123 pre-service mathematics teachers. The results shows that less than 50% of research subject can answer correctly and give the reason based on their competence in using representational form. According to interview data, we found that the obstacle of extracting information from given mathematical representations such as graphs in this sample item and others is translating mathematical content from one mathematical representational form to another.
