This work explores various ways by which Mathematica, Version 4, can be implemented for high school mathematics classes. Mathematica is a powerful tool that can systematically be used to enhance a variety of concepts. Different lesson plans with different topics and difficulty levels are created. With different classroom situations, ranging from single computer classroom to classrooms with a student to computer ratio of one to one, various grade levels, and assignments for the low, moderate, and high achieving students has been considered. These different types of lessons would benefit most high school students if implemented systematically.
