'Into' or 'in to'

'Into' or 'in to' can be the cause of great confusion to writers, but much of that confusion can be cleared up if you focus on what you are trying to say. 

One of the main uses of the preposition into is to indicate movement toward the inside of a place.
The children jumped into the pool for a swim.
 I drove the car into the garage.

In to is the adverb in followed by the preposition to.
He turned his homework in to the teacher.
I handed it in to the police.
