I cannot get Plot3D to work with sin[x+y]

Posted 10 years ago

This command

Plot3D[sin[x + y], {x, -3, 3}, {y, -3, 3}]


enter image description here

I am using Mathematica 10.0.2 on a MacBook Pro running Mac OS 10.10.2 with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048 MB graphics card. Note that

Plot3D[x + y, {x, -3, 3}, {y, -3, 3}]

works fine. I can change sine to cosine and I can change the argument, but everything I tried produced the same result. Does anyone understand why this is happening?

Mathematica is case sensitive, and the built-in function for sine is Sin, not sin.
