SolidWorks 2016 Motion Study Tools Missing

I am an engineering student working on an assignment to show the motion of an "Oscillating Steam Engine" using sketch blocks and SolidWorks motion study. I am new to motion studies and don't know too much about the settings.


I have constructed the steam engine and am attempting to run a motion study. I have the SolidWorks Motion add-in active, but I am not seeing the type of motion drop down menu (highlighted in yellow) and several other tools (see attached photos).


Is there a setting or an add-in that I have missed, or is the problem a limitation with my 2016 student SolidWorks license?
