Abstract
Modeling is one of abilities included in studying mathematical materials. Modeling is mostly used to express the events of everyday life , such as modeling of tsunami wave, modeling of population growth, and modeling of economics growth. Therefore, mathematical modeling is an important ability to be possessed by students. It is in line with the opinion of Niss (2010) who states that Modeling is a Crucial Aspect of Students' Mathematical Modeling. Considering its significance, mathematical modeling should be learned by students since they attend elementary school. For example, Singapore school curriculum has provided an opportunity for students to learn mathematical modeling abilities since they attended elementary school (Kaur and Dindyal, 2010). On the other hand, it is a fact that students  in some countries, such as Germany, England, Romania, Canada, Czech Republic, Mozambique, Netherlands, and Japan  have difficulties in mathematical modeling (Ikeda, 2007). Therefore, this paper is intended to discusse some difficulties faced by junior high school student in conducting mathematical modeling and model interpretation, particularly in the materials of linear equation system of two variables. Data were obtained from students in two junior high schools coming from two and three cluster schools in the Bandung Municipality, covering research subject as many as 151 students.
