    using LaTeX, type [tex]\frac{\,dy}{\,dx}[/tex] to get \frac{\,dy}{\,dx}, [tex]\frac{d^2y}{\,dx^2}[/tex] to get \frac{d^2y}{\,dx^2}, and [tex]\theta[/tex] to get \theta. However, I prefer [tex]\vartheta[/tex] to get \vartheta

    You can find more tutorials and the such in the LaTeX Help part of the forums.

    Furthermore:

    [tex]\dot{x}[/tex] gives \dot{x}

    [tex]\ddot{x}[/tex] gives \ddot{x}
