Abstract: 
This study sought to identify the effect of using computer simulation on the immediate and delayed achievement among eleventh grade students in the scientific branch and their attitudes towards learning the unit mechanics, and its teacher in public schools of the Directorate of Education in south of Nablus through answering the following question: What is the effect of the usage of computer simulation on the achievement of immediate and delayed among eleventh grade students and their attitudes towards learning the unit mechanics, and about its teacher? To answer the questions of the study and test its hypotheses, the researcher administered a questionnaire to a random sample consisting of (117) eleventh grade male and female students from the scientific branch at government schools of the Directorate of Education in south of Nablus, distribution at four sections in four different schools (two for boys and two for girls) and Two sections, chosen randomly(one for boys and the other for girls) both represented the experimental sections, and they were taught by using computer simulation as a method of instruction, and the group included (65), students of both sexes (36 male and 29 female) but the other two sections were taught by using traditional method of teaching , and the group included (52), students of both sexes (24 male and 28 female). And a test of tribal knowledge was prepared to ensure the equivalence of the two groups and were verified its truth by the arbitrators,. Its validity was calculated by using guider Richardson (20), and its value was(79.5% ). And the test of educational attainment was prepared to measure the immediate and delayed achievement of the student (keep learning) in the subject of (mechanics) have been verified its truth arbitrators, and its stability was calculated by using the Cord Richardson equation (20), and its value was (0.74), and a method of testing and retesting, according to Pearson correlation coefficient and its value was (0.824). And applied the scale of the trend toward science which was prepared by Olive (39:1988) after adaptation for the study purposes, to measure the student's trends (tribal, immediate, and delayed) toward learning the unit mechanics, and about its teacher, and verified the equivalence of the both group by using analysis of variance, and the total coefficient consistency of the trend towards tribal Physics was (83.6%), and the trend toward real-time physics (92.8%), and the trend toward delayed Physics (93.4). Tribal test was administered to the eleventh grade students classroom to verify the equivalence to the both group of experimental and control study. Then the test real-time was applied on the sets of the study just after the completion of the implementation of the activities of the program of computer simulation in physics, in order to identify the impact of the use of computer simulation on student's achievement directly, a month after the end of the test real-time application, in order to identify the effective use of computer simulation as a method of teaching article in the retention of students of the educated material. students have been tested the delayed test and it’s the immediate test itself. The data were analyzed by using analysis of variance, and the analysis of the variance of multiple dependent variables (MANOVA) in Hotling method test (T) for paired samples (t, test), to test hypotheses of the study hypothesis, a statistical analysis showed the following results at the level of (0.01=a): - it was found that there were statistically significant differences among the averages of the eleventh grade of the scientific branch towards learning physics, and its teacher, who were taught physics using computer simulation and those who were taught science using the traditional method. While there was no statistically significant differences for the achievement in the trend towards learning physics and its teacher to students in eleventh grade in the scientific branch who learned computer simulation due to gender at the level of significance) 0.01=a): - There were no statistically significant differences in achievement, and the trend towards learning physics, and its teacher to students in eleventh grade in the scientific branch in physics due to the interaction between teaching method and gender. - There were no statististically significant differences in achievement and the trend towards learning physics grade eleventh students in the scientific branch and test knowledge dimensional real-time, and their average achievement in a test of knowledge dimensional delayed in paragraphs scale trend towards learning physics in the real-time, and the average tendencies in the paragraphs of scale trend towards learning delayed physics, while there are significant differences in the direction of physics teacher to the students in grade eleventh in the scientific branch, and their average of their delayed attitudes. Based on the findings of the study and its importance of giving students an opportunity to obtain scientific information for themselves within an environment that allows them to think of creative, critical, problem-solving, and discovery through the teaching method simulates the computer in learning physics, the researcher recommends further research and study programs, computer simulation on various educational levels, and other topics in other provinces of the country, and to examine their impact when combined in methods that other teaching.
