This paper aims to analyze the use of computer simulations in physics teaching for basic cycles of engineering courses, highlighting their character trigger and instigator of discussions and debates, as well as its contribution to a process of teaching and learning based on scientific literacy. The simulators used, called applets, are made up of closed programs that have specific task, previously scheduled, allowing representations of physical situations that seldom be able to be reworked in a conventional laboratory class. The research was conducted in a class of 1st year engineering at a private university in São Paulo and the data obtained through the transcription of audio recordings and video lessons observed. As a benchmark analysis used the standard model argumentative Stephen Toulmin, enabling the identification and development of standards argumentative discussions in small groups.
