Question: indexing a matrix

I'm pretty new to Maple 16.


I need to calculate a 6x6 transformation matrix for 8 different angles (8 different plys...classical lamination theory problem in mechanics of composites class), and I don't want to cut and paste the matrix 8 times changing the angle.  I want to put the 8 angles in a column vector (I think that's right...maybe it needs to be an array) and then have the transformation matrix call the angles one at a time to calculate a transformation matrix for each angle (for each ply orientation).  Later I'll need to be able to use the 8 individual transformation matrices for specific plys.  


Thanks for any help!
