Undergraduate Thermodynamics courseware developed within Mathematica is described. The course material is incorporated into Notebooks which contain tutorials, sample problems, and instructions for using various thermodynamic functions. The core of the courseware is packages consisting, among other things, of functions for evaluating the thermodynamic properties of various materials, depicting processes on thermodynamic diagrams, and calculating the efficiency of a few thermodynamic cycles.
