### Abstract

This paper took advantage of the mathematical software Maple as the auxiliary tool to study the partial differential problems of four types of two-variables functions. We can obtain the infinite series forms of any order partial derivatives of these two-variables functions by using differentiation term by term theorem, and hence greatly reduce the difficulty of calculating their higher order partial derivative values. On the other hand, we proposed some examples to do calculation practically. The research methods adopted in this study involved finding solutions through manual calculations and verifying our answers by using Maple.
