Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine the increase in mastery of student concepts in Newton's Gravity Law material through Modeling Instruction. This research model uses a Mixed Method. The subjects of this research were 60 students in one of the schools in Batu city in grade X Science. Data obtained through statistical analysis of the value of the pretest and posttest. The results of the study show that teaching using Modeling Instruction can increase mastery of concepts by 0.65 with the medium category.
