mylist=Input["Enter a list"]

Map[ {#,#^2}& , mylist ]

TableForm[%]

or

TableForm @ Map[ {#,#^2}& , Input["Enter a list"] ]

or

f[x_]= 3 x^5 + 2 x^2 + 7

TableForm@Map[{#,f[#]}&,Input["Enter a list"]]

You dont really need tableform if all you want is a table. Tableform
is just for human readability.
