Autotransformations

You can also save time in Math Input mode by relying on autotransformations. Simply type "/" to see a fraction or "^" to get a power.

Wolfram Language

Wolfram Language users will appreciate that you can also enter your inputs using the Wolfram Language. If there is a corresponding template, the input will be transformed to a 2D input for you. Try typing “Integrate[Sin[xy],x,y]” to see it.
