How are magnets important to the function of electric motors?

YA is not the way to learn this broad subject. Search for electric motor basics.

When a wire (in a winding in the center of the motor, on the shaft) is near a magnet and a current passes through the wire, the wire, the winding, and the center spindle of the motor get a kick to the side. Add many windings, more magnets, and more current, the kick becomes very strong. That lets the electric motor do work.
Instead of an ordinary magnet, some motors use an electro-magnet. That is a piece of regular soft iron that has a wire wrapped around it. That makes it seem like a magnet with a strong magnetic field.

electromagnetism makes a motor WORK. with-out it, you've got an expensive boat anchor .............
