This article describes a generalization strategy on pictorial visual patterns. This explorative descriptive study involves 60 students of 7 Grade Student of private junior high school in Tuban East Java Indonesia. Data obtained through the pattern generalization task. The type of pattern used in this research is pictorial sequences with two non-consecutive terms. Selection of a pictorial sequences with two non-consecutive pattern to focus students' attention on visual stimuli. Based on the students answers of pattern generalization task, there are 33 students who answered correctly and 27 students answered wrong. From the correct answer, there are six different general formula representations. The visualization strategy used by the students begins by splitting the image into smaller elements. The way students break down into smaller elements is also diverse. Students divide the image in the form of V (2 matchsticks), U shape (3 matchsticks), square shape (4 matchsticks) and lastly divide in a unit additive consisting of 7 matchsticks.

The purpose of this study is to describe the relational thinking profile of students of Quitter-Visual, Camper-Visual and Climber-Visual type in solving mathematical problems based on Polya rules. To support the research, we use qualitative descriptive method involving 30 students of grade V SDN Sawahan I Surabaya. The data were collected using math skill test and interview. The results show that, Climber-Visual type students are able to apply all polya steps properly and correctly and Camper-Visual type students are only able to understand the problem and implement it while the Quitter-Visual type students are less able to understand the problem and abandon it. The result is caused by students' endurance in facing difficulties. The findings of this study can be used to map effective and efficient learning methods.
