The use of mathematica notebooks for classroom in undergraduate dynamics is discussed. Mathematica employed to teach a variety of topics, is used to parallel and illustrate the formal development of equation in a manner consistent with the textbook. Mathematica lends itself to this purpose, as its syntax is not unlike that found in textbooks. The software also allows user input thus allowing student to vary the parameter defining the problem and to see the variations in results.
