matrix powers

I am working in Maple. I have a matrix A, which is square, and I
want to compute powers of A. I can view A using print(A). If B:= A^2,
and then I type print(B), all I get is A^2, instead of the entries of B.

First, am I computing B correctly? Can/should I use &* ?

What's going on with viewing the matrix entries. I need to do
this for debugging purposes. Thanks.
