Abstract: “To pay attention to and improve the teaching level of foundmental college physics”,the slogan has   been proposed for many years,policy incentives,teacher demonstrations,and various measures have been implemented.   In the situation of physical knowledge growing considerably and physical problems becoming increasingly   complexity,the traditional teaching focus to illustrate the concepts of physics is facing the obsolete expressions,   lack of means to solve,not easy to expand the curriculum,difficult to deepen concepts,and many other teaching   insurmountable difficulties. This paper uses specific examples in the courses of mechanical,thermal,geometrical   optics and quantum mechanics,combining the convenience and power of Mathematica software,from aspects of solving   differential equations,updating the way of expression,expanding course content,overcoming difficulties of   knowledge and courses,deepening physics concepts,etc,to discourse the necessity and possibility of introducing   computing means to enhance the teaching level of college physics.

Key words: college physics teaching, computing means, Mathematica
