In essence, learning mathematics requires intellectual readiness and the mental activity of students to learn rules or arguments. Students learn from logical, critical, and objective thinking in order to solve the problems of everyday life. However, their conceptual abilities are still very low. Low conceptual knowledge is caused by various things, including learning styles. In this study, the intended learning styles are: Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic. For this reason, the study tries to analyze the cognitive abilities of students in terms of their learning styles. This study uses a comparative method, with a total of 106 students with the time of implementation from January to July 2019. The results of the study showed a difference in students' cognitive mathematical abilities for the three learning styles.
