How to | Make a Table

In Mathematica, many kinds of data are stored in tables or lists. Mathematica provides many useful functions for creating and manipulating these tables.

Use Table to make a table of values for a function:

In[3]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[3]=

Use Table with two variables to make a 2D table of values (stored as ):

In[7]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[7]=

Use Grid to put the values in a grid:

In[8]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[8]=

Use an option to put in a frame:

In[9]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[9]=
    

Tables in Mathematica can contain arbitrary elements. Make a Table with Plot, and use ImageSize to control the size of the output:

In[9]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[9]=
    

You can also create a Table using an arbitrary list of values for the table iterator (in this case, ):

In[10]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[10]=
