For my matlab class, we have to "call" a function. However, the video that was shown to us only shows how to call functions within functions. Let's say if I have a function that calls several other functions (these functions find the max, min, average, etc. of an array), and I have to call that function into another script that has an array, how would I do that?

There is no difference in calling a function if you are in a script or in a function. You still use the same syntax
[first_output, second_output, third_output etc] = function_name(first_parameter, second_parameter, third_parameter etc)

what do you mean by "first parameter", "second parameter", etc.?

first_parameter is the parameter that you pass in the first position after the ( after the function name. second_parameter is the parameter that you pass in the second position after the ( after the function name.
Basic parameter passing is all positional in MATLAB unless the function iset set up to handle name/value pairs.
