    In general, this key ^ means to the power of. So, x(squared) is x^2

    put (x^2) maybe?

    does typing ^2 automatically change it to the superscript?
    In grapher (applications > utilities) it does..

    edit
    aww, beaten by stridey. :(

    Not that I know of, but Grapher is a) already on your computer, and b) pretty easy to grok.

    It's in /Applications/Utilities/Grapher.app

    Since you're in Madrid, I'm not sure. On my computer it's Shift-6.
