The introduction of new information and communication technologies in the educational process requires a transition to a new high-quality level of teaching physics, the revitilization of students’ educational activities. The successful use of pedagogical software helps the teacher to present educational material at a high and quality level, to control educational activities, to increase the self-organization of the educational process. Computer demonstrations can be an organic part of any class and effectively help the teacher and learners. Some physical processes or phenomena cannot be observed visually in the laboratory. Modeling of various phenomena certainly does not replace "live" experiments, but in combination allows explaining the meaning of a particular educational material at a higher level. This article discusses the practical use of pedagogical software products for modeling physical processes: software product "Laboratory work "Study of hemodynamics fundamentals using the apparatus "Heart-lung machine SORIN C5", mobile application "Pedometer", software product "Educational software in physics. Electrodynamics". Software products form subject of competencies in physics. There is a more complete realization of students’ potential resources in the process of forming new knowledge about basic physical principles and approaches to the study of processes in living nature, physical and technical principle of the functioning of devices, the use of mathematical methods in research. Solving professionally oriented tasks and performing laboratory work in physics improves the quality of the professional component of education. The priority of computer models is that the process of their perception takes place in the same way as the process of perception of real objects, increasing the success of learning. The authors carried out an experimental test on the effectiveness of implementing the proposed pedagogical software products in the educational process in physics. The article presents the results of experimental research at the Volodymyr Vynnychenko Central Ukrainian State Pedagogical University, which showed positive changes in the attitude of students to the study of physics.
