In the commands window (lower right) of the Formula editor type

cm^3 to to add "centimetres cubed" to your formula

and sin^-1 to add "sine inverse" to your formula

Other math symbols can be accessed in the Math editor by selecting Tools>Catalog (Symbols) to open the Symbols dialog.

Under Symbol set select Special and press the Edit button to open the Edit Symbols dialog.

Looking in the lower left different fonts have different symbol sets available.

The two I have found that have the most math symbols are Arial Unicode MS and Lucinda Sans Unicode

You can scroll through the list of symbols, or under Subset you can select Mathematical Operators to jump to the appropriate area of the symbol list.

If you find something you want, select it and press the Add button and then OK

Your selected symbol will now appear on the list of Special symbols in the Symbols dialog.

Press the Insert button and the symbol will be added to your formula.
