6.9 Mathematical Functions & Operations

The following tables provide a reference of mathematical functions, constants, and operators.

  • Table 6.5 contains general functions and numbers that can be used for both Maple T.A. and Maple questions.
  • Table 6.6 provides the function names for Maple T.A. and Maple questions for the hyperbolic and inverse hyperbolic functions. Note that Maple T.A. and Maple use different notation for these functions.
  • Table 6.7 contains exclusive Maple notation. For a complete list of Maple functions, refer to Maple documentation. Some Maple commands take unevaluated forms. For a discussion on student use of unevaluated forms, see Maple Syntax.
