Education has an important role in the effort to create quality human resources. Chemistry can be understood through three aspects of chemical representation, namely macroscopic, submicroscopic, and symbolic aspects. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to look at students' understanding of chemical bonds using the concept of flow maps based on the gender. The sample of this study was 171 high school students of the XII level in Pekanbaru. Data were analyzed using SPSS 21.0 by looking at the frequency of students in answering questions and outlining the answers. The results showed that students understanding are below the average based on the frequency of students in explaining and answering questions given. The results of the t test analysis showed that there was no significant difference in understanding of male and female but based on the results of mean showed that male had a high average value compared to female scores.
