    Abstract

    Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to examine an computer simulation model in order to improve physics teacher candidates student‘s comprehension on special relativity concept. This is quasi-experimental research with subjects are 30 students who were enrolled in modern physics course. Research data were collected by using concept comprehension achievement test. Data were analyzed by using mean-difference test and normalized gain scores. The results indicated that the computer simulation model can be increases student‘s comprehension on special relativity concept. The teacher and students gave good comment on the implemented model. We conclude that the computer simulation model can be increases student‘s comprehension on special relativity concept.
