Motion simulation programs can be key components in learning mechanics due to their sandbox approach and intuitive use. In our research we focus on examining, whether students who use a motion simulation program while learning mechanics learn the curriculum more effectively. To measure this, we conducted an experiment that involved 700 students. The data shows, that the students who learned dynamics with the help of motion simulation software mastered the course material better than those who learned it in a traditional way. We also proved that this effect is especially significant for students from weaker and medium-strength schools.
