Maple uses the full evaluation rule most of the time, but as we have already seen, there are exceptions to this rule. Three exceptions that we have seen so far are delayed evaluation (i.e. using right quotes), forcing certain levels of evaluation with the eval command, and not evaluating names on the left hand side of an assignment operator. Another exception to the full evaluation rule is the last name evaluation rule that is used for the names of tables, arrays, procedures, and Maple functions. We have not discussed tables, arrays, and procedures yet, so for now we will only use Maple functions as examples for the last name evaluation rule.
