I would suggest starting with the Journal of Chemical Education. There is
a web-based collection of exercises using computer algebra systems that
address all areas of chemistry, including a number directed toward
theoretical chemistry. Included are topics such as:
Symbolic Math Approach To Solve Particle-in-the-Box and H-Atom Problems
Construction of the Electronic Angular Wave Functions and Probability
Distributions of the Hydrogen Atom
Exploring Orthonormal Functions
Exploring the Harmonic Oscillator Wave Function Components
Potential Barriers and Tunneling
Visualization of Wavefunctions of the Ionized Hydrogen Molecule
Variational Methods Applied to the Particle in a Box
and many others - these are all part of the SymMath Collection -

One of the features I edit for the Journal, the WebWare feature, also has
some theoretical chemistry applications including:
Restricted Hartree-Fock SCF Calculations Using Microsoft Excel
Self-Consistent Field Calculations Spreadsheet
The Effect of Anharmonicity on Diatomic Vibration: A Spreadsheet Simulation
Hückel Determinant Solver
These are at
http://jchemed.chem.wisc.edu/JCEDLib/WebWare/collection/reviewed/index.html
The print version of the Journal also contains many articles dealing with
theoretical chemistry topics.
All of these are part of the National Science Digital Library -

I hope this helps,
