MathType is a powerful interactive equation
editor for Windows and Macintosh that lets you create mathematical notation
for word processing, web pages, desktop publishing, presentations,
elearning, and for TeX, LaTeX, and MathML documents.
MathType is a Universal application supporting both Intel and PowerPC Macs. MathType works with Mac OS X Tiger (10.4.9) or later, including
Mac OS Sierra (version 10.12).
Here are just a few of MathType's many features:
Works with Many Applications
MathType lets you add equations to
documents, presentations, and spreadsheets
in Pages, Numbers, and
Microsoft Office 2011 Support (Office 2016 coming):
MathType brings back its full functionality, including equation numbering, within Word 2011. MathType is also compatible with Office 2008 but not all features are available. Please see So what's the story with MathType and Microsoft Office 2008? for details.
Author: Add and edit equations in
the ebooks you are authoring and make the
math accessible to people with visual disabilities.

Many Ways to
Work: MathType can add equations to virtually
any application or website into
which you can paste or drag a graphic in
PDF, EPS, or GIF format or in LaTeX or
MathML math languages. Check our
Works With section
for details on how MathType works with your
favorite apps and websites.
Use MathType with all three Apple iWork
apps. Here it is with Pages 5.0:
Use MathType with Microsoft
Microsoft Office 2011 (Office 2016 coming):
More Symbols, Templates, and Fonts
MathType has hundreds more symbols and
templates than Equation Editor. Besides our
Euclid math fonts,
you can also make use of the 1000s 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.
Three Ways to Create
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 type it
into the MathType window or directly into a
Word document. 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.
Type TeX or LaTeX directly into a Microsoft
Word document: With MathType's
unique TeX Toggle feature, you can type TeX directly
into a Word document. When you are done, use the TeX
Toggle command to turn it into a typeset equation. If
you want to edit it later, use TeX Toggle again to turn
it back into TeX to make your changes.
Typing TeX can be combined with MathType's
traditional point-and-click editing:
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.
Shortcuts: MathType has customizable
keyboard shortcuts for virtually every
symbol, template, and command.
Easier to Use
Toolbar and Menu
in Microsoft Word 2011:
MathType adds a toolbar and menu to
Microsoft Word 2011, allowing quick access to its
features and powerful commands to do
equation numbering, produce great-looking
math web pages, and much more. MathType also
works with Word 2008 but lacks the toolbar
and menu support.
Color: Coloring an
equation can make it stand out.
Use color to highlight part of an equation
your students' attention on it. Show
