The use of technology has crucial influences on mathematical modeling. The purpose of this study was to examine students' approaches to the contextualized problems in the "technology world" of the modeling activity. This research employed a qualitative descriptive study. The subjects of this research were six of the fourth semester students of Mathematics Education Department, State Islamic Institute of Jember, East Java Indonesia academic year 2017-2018 with different degree of visuality; two visual students, two harmonic students, and two non visual students. They solved several tasks involving polynomial models, where students regularly used geogebra. Based on the results of research analysis, it was shown that the visual students skipped much of the algebra work, and rather chose a geometrical approach. While harmonic and non-visual students rather chose the algebraic approach, they skipped much of the geometric work.
