ABSTRACT
Background:
Most students thinking mathematics is a difficult subject. This study aims to enhance students’ motivation and efficiency in learning mathematics.

Material and methods:
This study developed 3D animation on the binomial theorem with historical stories of mathematics as the plot. It also examined the effect of animation on students’ learning willingness and comprehension. And using questionnaire to collect data.

Results:
The results showed that enhance the students’ comprehension of the binomial theorem, suggesting that 3D animation could effectively improve mathematical learning.

Conclusions:
Moreover, the results showed that the students’ willingness to learn mathematics also increased, suggesting that 3D animation can be used as an auxiliary learning tool for students. The results demonstrated that using 3D animation can improve students’ learning willingness, comprehension, and application of mathematics.
