You should provide more info.  Are you trying to load some of the
standard packages?  What command do you use to load the packages?  How
do you know that Mathematica reads the packages if the functions are
not defined?  Do you get any error messages?

Create a single text file, named test.m, with the contents

f[x_] = x^2

Change the directory to where the file is using the SetDirectory[]
command, and type

<< "test.m"

What happens?

Try typing


Is the function definition returned?
