Abstract
The purpose of this study is to investigate elementary students' skills in producing different representations in solving mathematical word problems. These skills consist of skills in generating and clarifying ideas and evaluating representations. Data collected in the form of words obtained through interviews, drawings of students' responses to problems, and audio-visual recordings. This study describes the data analysis and interprets the findings using text. A total of 25 elementary students participated in data collection. This study carries out the analysis on the preparation, analysis, exploration, planning, implementation, and verification phases. Results show that students can represent their word problems in different ways and literacy skills. Implications in teaching and learning produce several factors, such as directing students to think creatively. Ultimately, teachers must realize and use students' skills in generating ideas, clarifying ideas, literacy, and evaluating representations in solving word problems in preparing and processing learning.

Key words: Elementary math education, Students' skills, Verbal representation, Graphical representation, Table representation, Algebraic representation
