For learning the mathematical concepts need to have special skills. Reasoning is skill that uses to teach and learn. These reasoning must have harmony to real life. Analogical reasoning is reasoning skill that made to better learning in mathematical context. In this research, analogical reasoning skills have been instructed on 20 students of first grade in girly high school and the results of the Leven and independent samples tests have shown that instruction through analogical reasoning improves the mathematical learning. Therefore it seems that instruction of mathematical concepts through analogical reasoning modify the misconceptions and difficult of mathematical problems for students.
