The research was motivated by the lack of students’s learning ability caused by their difficulties in understanding abstract physics concepts. Cmaptools-based media prototype aided 5E Learning Cycle (5EPMBCT) learning method may be an alternative solution to this problem, because it can help students learn from his own experiences so that they can apply the concepts and also by using CT-based media, it is possible to visualize abstract Physics concepts. This research used a pre-experimental design method with one group pretest-posttest research design implemented in one of class VII at the Junior High School in West Bandung regency. The purpose of this study is to find out how the improvement in student cognitive learning outcomes after the implementation of 5EPMBCT learning model. The results showed that cognitive learning outcomes with normalized gain <g> valued at 0.58 with moderate category. This research produces learning models product and CmapTools-based learning media for straight motion. However, there are still many things that need to be improved, such as content development of PMBCT teaching material.
