The way of constructing mathematical concept done by students can be through different ways. The development of student comprehension in constructing that concept can be analyzed by APOS (Action, Processes, Object, and Scheme) theory. This theory can be used to describe individual’s scheme development for certain mathematic topic. This paper discussed how to reveal student ability in constructing or reconstructing action, process, and object of mathematic and organizing it in scheme which is used to solve the problem of line and row.
