Visual thinking is the ability, process, and results of creating, interpreting, using, and imagining ideas on images / diagrams, both on paper and with technological tools that aim to describe and communicate information / ideas and develop earlier ideas and to improve understanding. Integral is a mathematical concept that requires several representations in its discussion. This study aims to describe students' ability to think visually to solve integral problems, especially the concept of broad areas. This study used a descriptive qualitative approach, the subjects were 3 students of the Faculty of Mathematics of the IAIN Tulungagung . The results showed that visual thinking skills can be divided into three levels: Semi Local Visual, Local Visual and Semi Global Visual.
