we apply the improved (𝐺/𝐺)-expansion method for constructing abundant new exact traveling wave solutions of the (2+1)-dimensional Modified Zakharov-Kuznetsov equation. In addition, 𝐺+𝜆𝐺+𝜇𝐺=0 together with 𝑏(𝛼)=𝑤𝑞=𝑤𝑝𝑞(𝐺/𝐺)𝑞 is employed in this method, where 𝑝𝑞(𝑞=0,±1,±2,,±𝑤), 𝜆 and 𝜇 are constants. Moreover, the obtained solutions including solitons and periodic solutions are described by three different families. Also, it is noteworthy to mention out that, some of our solutions are coincided with already published results, if parameters taken particular values. Furthermore, the graphical presentations are demonstrated for some of newly obtained solutions.
