This study aim to investigate the characteristics of students’ sensory mathematical imagination of in solving mathematics problems. This study includes qualitative research with two students of VIII grade junior high school used as subjects. To determine the characteristics of students sensory mathematical imagination who appeared in solving mathematics problems, researchers use the problem sheet as a supporting instrument in this study. The problem sheet consists of a question item that serves to stimulate appear of students sensory mathematical imagination. For accuracy of data using triangulation method of observation, students answers, and interviews. The results showed characteristics of students sensory mathematical imagination in solving mathematics problems is appear of the idea based on perception due to stimulate of the problem, actualization information by analogy according to what people think, the activity involves body movement (sensory motor), can be seen through visual representation.
