# Section 3.4Typing 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
