### Abstract
To supplement the teaching of mathematical modeling for college students at the Ateneo de Manila University we have developed a workbook consisting of several computer exercises. The workbook is designed primarily for applied mathematics students majoring in computational science with a background in differential and integral calculus, ordinary differential equations, and classical mechanics. Mathematica, a general computer software system and language intended for mathematical and other applications, is used in the implementation of the computer exercises. This presentation focuses on the features of the workbook developed. Some examples contained in the workbook are demonstrated.
