In the learning and teaching of mathematics and physics it is very important to make concepts visually well demonstrated and robust. A virtual reality mathematics, physics simulation are each educational tools using a virtual reality interface that brings together a 3D model of real situation and a virtual visualization of a mathematical problem or a physical phenomenon in an interactive learning environment. Our goal is to create models that assist analysis and understanding of the concepts and problems of mathematics and the concepts and processes of physics. In this paper, we present some computer-based virtual reality simulation that helps students learn at elementary school and grammar school. There is satisfaction with the effectiveness and efficiency of such systems in institutions where this tool has already been tested in education. We have made examinations in this direction relevantly, the results of which are presented in the paper.
