You don't need to memorize the individual parameters. You really don't have to remember the function names but it will help you later. Just remember the concepts and that will help you a lot. You will become more and more familiar with them through practice.

Oh and also, I know this is the STUPIDEST question EVER because I could easily find out myself but because of HUMAN STUPIDITY and LAZINESS I am asking it now, but when I call all of the OpenGL functions, are they case sensitive?
