The Covid-19 pandemic forces students to study physics from home. Lecturers need to facilitate, so that the essence of physics learning objectives can be achieved. This study aims tosupport students’ scientific communication with multiple representations. This research was conducted with a pre-test post-test design. The research was conducted on 30 students of IAIN Salatiga who program basic physics courses. The research data were analyzed using paired t-test (α = 5%) and gain test. The results showed that there were significant differences in students’ scientific communication skills, between before and after being given learning supported by multiple representations. In general, students’ scientific communication skills have increased with moderate criteria. the implementation of multi-representation becomes a real effort to involve students in learning scientific communication skills. it is necessary so that students succeed in learning and it is proven that students’ scientific communication skills have increased.
