How to programmatically generate markdown output in Jupyter notebooks?

I want to write a report for classes in Jupyter notebook. I'd like to count some stuff, generate some results and include them in markdown. Can I set the output of the cell to be interpreted as markdown?
I'd like such command: print '$\phi$' to generate phi symbol, just like in markdown.
