## Developer’s Description

## Interactive equation editor

MathType is an interactive **equation software** from developer Design Science (Dessci) that lets you create and annotate math **notation** for word processing, desktop publishing, presentations, eLearning, and more. The editor is also used for creating **TeX**, **LaTeX**, and **MathML documents.**

### For the classroom or the boardroom

Traditional word processors are limited when it comes to working with complex mathematical equations or scientific **expressions**. MathType is a complementary desktop program that allows users to create formulas, edit them, and insert them into a variety of documents. With this software **students**, educators, and professionals can build authentic **formulas** for research papers and rigorous review.

### A compact interface

The Mathtype Interface is a compressed and slightly crowded, with four rows of buttons for the symbols and a row of five tabs categorized by type of math expression: algebra, derivations, statistics, matrices, sets, trig, and geometry. Navigation is straightforward, and users can manipulate equations as they please.

It’s easy to build an equation in MathType’s editing panel. To start, you have to click on the buttons to select their desired symbol or by using the Insert Symbol command. It’s also possible to **copy and paste** from the editing pane to another application.

There’s a vast range of formatting options to suit a variety of equations. Another attractive feature of MathType is that you can customize the app through the Preferences dialog box. You can assign your own **keyboard shortcuts** to all symbols, templates, and commands. These shortcuts consist of one or two keystrokes with CTRL, Alt, or Shift modifiers.

### MathType tools

When MathType installs a toolbar into Microsoft Word, users can insert mathematical notation either in-line or centered. The commands are straightforward. You can format equations by changing spacing, styles, font sizes, of all equations, without having to open equations individually. Convert equations to mark-up languages, and export all equations into a folder as either **EPS**,**GIF**, **WMF**, or **PICT**.

With the toolbar, insert numbers in either the right or left-hand side, which will automatically be updated if they place a formula in the middle of the document. This is useful for inserting chapters, hyperlinked references, sections, and equation numbers, which is great, especially for teachers who need to make worksheets.

MathType also installs a toolbar into **Powerpoint**, allowing users to design attractive presentations. With this toolbar, color all parts of equations. MathType handles **CMYK**, **RGB** and spot color (for page layout software).

**Math Expression Generator**‘ is an application which generates math expressions taking into considerations supplied parameters. It uses custom defined parameters, base elements and operations which you can freely define to generate the mathematical expressions.

**What’s Cool**

1. Also great for teachers who must prepare the tasks for their students.

2. Learn while having fun: challenge your friends on GAME CENTER.

3. Succeeding in mathematics is a matter of exercise, everyone can get good results with the right preparation.

4. Try to solve the exercises with pen and paper, if you don’t know how to do it, the app shows you the COMPLETE SOLUTION.

## Equation creator and editor

MathType is an educational desktop program developed by Design Science. The graphical editor is used only for creating mathematical equations in a full graphical What You See Is What You Get or WYSIWYG environment. This means you can directly enter various mathematical markup languages such as TeX, LaTeX, and MathML. It is also integrated with other office and productivity software like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Powerpoint, and Apple Pages. By collaborating with these desktop applications, you can quickly add equations and formulas onto your documents. MathType for Windows is compatible with Windows 7 or newer as well as Microsoft Office 2007 or newer.

### Capabilities

The purpose of MathType is to help users format mathematical equations. Whether the content will appear in textbooks or technical formulas, the program has an extensive set of tools that can help you create equations that are up to publication standards. You can specify which equations were authored on MathType as well as collaborate with other authors and post-production staff using the platform.
