You shear and moment diagrams look OK, so it is not obvious that there is a problem. Why do you think that there is one?

I am trying to write out the shear and moment equations for the beam in mathcad. The attached figure was from Beampro (an analysis software).

You are going to have to write them piece-wise. Don't expect to find a single expression valid everywhere.
