## Not exactly......

Thanks for the reply, but that's not quite what I'm looking for. I have a TI-89 that does an excellent job at being a calculator. I'm impressed by Maple's ability to create a nice-looking document with all my expressions and equations pretty-printed...but I just can't make it leave my degrees alone...either it interprets "30" as 30 radians, or it treats it as degrees, but then immediately replaces it with "Pi/6". Bottom line, what I want is for it to look like Maple only knows degrees, not radians. I'm starting to get the idea that it won't do that...I appreciate the replies, though.

## Thank you for the quick...

Thank you for the quick reply! That does indeed give me the correct answer value...but what I'm hoping for is the ability to enter this: [> F_x=F*sin(60*deg); And have Maple print it just like that. If I was using radians for my angles, it wouldn't be a problem, because that's Maple's "native" mode. I wish there was a way to make Maple understand degrees by default, since that seems to be how most physics courses are done.
