Typing Mathematical Statements in GC

Usually you type normally in GC. Sometimes, however, you want something special, such as a superscript (for exponents) or the symbol π. Table 3.4.1 lists ways to tell GC to do something special.

**Table 3.4.1. Basic GC Commands**

TO GET... |
TYPE... |

Exponent | Shift-6 |

Exit exponent or move on to next term | $\downarrow$ or $\rightarrow$ |

Division | / |

Multiplication | * |

Parentheses ( ) | ( |

π | pi |

θ | theta |

Select the next higher expression that contains the insertion point | $\uparrow$ |

A split definition (a piecewise function) | Ctrl-Shift-A |

New line | Ctrl-Enter |
