Transporting student thinking from novice to expert, teachers should use computer simulation which is a scientific approach to teach physics (Weiman, 2005).The purpose of this study is to examine the benefits of interactive simulations research in physics secondary education and their effects on student achievement I will report the results yielded by the survey, which I have administered to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Teachers (STEM) of NewYork City-American Modeling Teachers Association (AMTA).The teachers have participated in STEM teaching practice workshops and have used simulations in their teaching practice from 2013 to 2014. The findings of this study may promote interactive learning, connecting physical phenomena with practical training, enhancing student learning, changing of classroom environment, providing opportunities to review conceptual understanding of physics. Specifically, this research study will contribute to the ongoing changes being made to the computer simulations and to changes in science instruction in general.
