Most powers will be automatically recognised by the equation tool.  The equation tool will not automatically recognise powers if


you require a variable as a power
you require a function as a power
you require a power of a number
you require a complicated power.


In these cases you need to explicitly indicate the power using the ^ symbol.  As with fractions, complicated powers need to be surrounded with brackets.  These brackets will not be displayed.
