In the May/June 1991 Computers in Physics Education column, I discussed the reasons for, my attempts at, and the results of introducing Mathematica into my upper-division theoretical physics courses. Two Mathematica notebooks, for my quantum physics class, were included. In this column, I present a notebook and a package, for my computational physics course, to show how Mathematica notebooks can be used to give creative, exciting and effective lectures.
