#### Abstract

*Abstract*

*This **research** aims to explain the mathematical literacy of junior high school students in **Academic Year **2015/2016, in solving problems related to algebraic expressions in terms of iconic and symbolic representation. T**his **resear**ch used **descriptive method **which applied Case Study form**. The subjects of this **research** were 41 students** of SMP Kristen Immanuel Pontianak**. The results of data analysis show**ed** that the formulate process of mathematical situations wh**en** changing the form of iconic representation, students **looked** better **in** making schemes from real situations to pictorial forms (tables). **Considering** from the formulate process of mathematical situations when changing the form of symbolic representation, students ha**d **difficulty in** conducting **manipulat**ion by** using symbols from real situations into symbolic forms. **Considering** from the process of using iconic representation in **accomplishing** mathematical literacy questions, the majority of students were able to **accomplish** mathematical literacy questions **which were given** by using table representation. **Considering** from the process of using symbolic representation in **accomplishing** mathematical literacy problems,** **upper **l**evel** students** tend to be able to **accomplish **the **questions** well. Conversely, middle level students experience**d** problems i**n** calculation process.*
