This study is a research development program of Adaptive Mobile Learning with Coherence Mayer principle on the subjects of Biology. The limitation of this study is application of mobile learning which designed adaptively to the three learning styles of learner i.e., the visual, auditory and Kinaesthetic. The provision of the three learning styles meant that the learners can learn the Biology material more easily appropriate to their learning style. The methods in the development of Adaptive Mobile Learning used method of R & D which refers to the development model of Alessi and Trollip. And then, the research and development program of Adaptive Mobile Learning conducted in Senior High School 11 Yogyakarta (SMA Negeri 11 Yogyakarta Indonesia), class of XI IPA-2. After product development, the validity of the products was tested by expert media and expert material. The value of validation test media and material reached 3.98 on good category (worth). Then, the product was tested in one class. Based on the test results, the developing of Adaptive Mobile Learning program had influence to increase the cognitive learning results of students on the subjects of biology. The results showed by the results of the comparison of the two averagesN-Gain between pre-test and post-test results. Gain score showed the average 65.58. Then, the results of a pre-test and post-test also tested statistically to find out the extent of their significance. Based on the results of statistical tests obtained value of significance rating 0.000 < (0.050). Thus, it can be concluded that the Adaptive Mobile Learning program is effective to improve the learning results of students on the subjects of biology.
