Using the computer graphics technology for a classroom demonstration is highly stimulating and encouraging for students in an optical course. In this paper, we present several examples of using computer graphical technology to make teaching and learning optics more effective and efficient, Which include that using pattern displays the results of numerical computation, using the "visualization" shows the process of solving mathematical problems, using color images shows simulation results, and using image processing technology enhances the picture of experimental results.
