Sage is organized a bit different from Maple. First, when you define any object like C. = CyclotomicField(7) Then all the methods that are available to `C` can be accessed by doing `C.[tab]` where `[tab]` implies that you should press the `Tab` button on your keyboard. Once you find a method that seems relevant to what you want to do, say, `C.gen`, then type `C.gen?[tab]` and you will see the documentation of the method. Type `C.gen??[tab]` to see the source code. What I want to say here is that you don't need to go around poking through the documentation. You can discover the functionality on the fly.
