Demonstrating the striking symmetry between calculus and q
-calculus, we obtain q
-analogues of the Bateman, Pasternack, Sylvester, and Cesàro polynomials. Using these, we also obtain q
-analogues for some of their generating functions. Our q
-generating functions are given in terms of the basic hypergeometric series
, and q
-Pochhammer symbols. Starting with our q
-generating functions, we are also able to find some new classical generating functions for the Pasternack and Bateman polynomials.
