MathType is a powerful interactive tool for Windows that lets you create mathematical notation for word processing, web pages, desktop publishing, presentations, and for TeX, LaTeX, and MathML documents. MathType works with 100s of applications and websites, allowing you to put Equations Everywhere and Anywhere™.

Features and Benefits

More Symbols, Templates and Fonts

  • More Fonts: MathType has hundreds more symbols and templates than Equation Editor. Beside our exclusive Euclid math fonts, you can also make use of the 1000's of math symbols in fonts already on your computer, as well as math fonts you can download from the Internet.

  • Find Symbols: MathType's Insert Symbol dialog allows you to explore the available symbols and insert them with a click or keystroke.

Works with Many Applications
While many MathType users create equations for Microsoft Word documents and PowerPoint presentations, MathType also works with many, many other applications and websites and we are adding more and more every day:

  • Add equations to Quark and InDesign documents.

  • Copy equations from websites like Wikipedia, PlanetMath, etc. for use in your own work. You can author new equations for those websites as well.

  • Copy equations from Mathematica or Maple into your research.

  • Use equations to label DeltaGraph scientific graphs and Excel spreadsheets.

  • Work with TeX and LaTeX editors and documents.

Two Ways to Create Equations

  • Point-and-Click Editing with Automatic Formatting: Equations can be created quickly by choosing templates from MathType's palettes and typing into their empty slots. MathType applies mathematical spacing rules automatically as you type.

  • Type TeX or LaTeX: If you already know the TeX typesetting language, you can enter equations quickly using MathType's TeX input mode. TeX editing can be mixed with point-and-click editing so you get the best of both worlds. You can also paste in equations from existing TeX documents.

Saves Time

  • Save Expressions in the Toolbar: Drag frequently used equations and expressions to the MathType toolbar so they can be inserted later with just a click or a keystroke.

  • Keyboard Shortcuts: MathType has customizable keyboard shortcuts for virtually every symbol, template, and command.

Easier to Use

  • Microsoft Office 2007 — MathType Ribbon Tab in Word and PowerPoint: MathType takes full advantage of Office 2007's new Ribbon User Interface making it easier than ever to do equation operations in documents and presentations. New equation numbering and browse features work with all Word equation types.

  • Microsoft Office 2003, XP (2002), and 2000 — MathType Toolbar and Menu in Word and PowerPoint: MathType adds a toolbar and menu to Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, allowing quick access to its features and powerful commands to do equation numbering, produce great-looking math web pages, presentations, and much more.

Better Results

  • Color: Coloring an equation can make it stand out. Use color to highlight part of an equation and focus your students' attention on it. Show what changed in each step of a multi-step procedure.

Why Upgrade?
To get the latest features, bug fixes, and compatibility maintenance changes for new versions of Microsoft Office and other applications.

MathType is a mature product that has been around for 20 years, and we continually add new features.
