Math Type is very powerful program that can be used for editing, solving and creating math equations. Well, it is a great program that allows you to make mathematical notations that you can use in presentations, web pages, desktop publish, word processing, eLearning as well as Latex, Tex and MathMl Documented. If you want to have this program, you can try first its demo, but if you want the full version you need to buy it. Moreover, one of the benefits that I like here is that compared to other similar program MathType has small file size, you can download the program just under 10MB. Not only that, this program also ensures that it will not cause your PC or Laptop to slowdown in performance. Plus, it does not require a great computer. So what are you waiting for? If you want create mathematical equations in easiest way, I guess MathType is the best choice for it.


  • The program is very efficient and useful
  • Very simple to use and understand


  • The program is very expensive

Mathematics is considered to be one of the difficult subjects in the education curriculum. Most students literally hate the subject and this eventually leads to poor performance in the subject. With this problem in mind, MathType comes in hand to provide a solution to this problem. This is a tool designed to create mathematical and scientific equations. One can find all the symbols used in mathematical calculations like roots, sets, multiplication, matrices, statistical formulas and symbols, etc.

The software has an excellent tool for creating expressions that require mathematical notation in word processors, web pages and presentations. All one needs is to install the software and create a word processing environment and an additional toolbar which brings in equations and expressions. One can also insert references to the equations and sections in their working environment, with your mouse, you can enter operations and calculations just like you do manually. Keyboard shortcuts can also be useful in inserting commands and one also save workings for future reference.


  • It is simple to use
  • It makes solving mathematical problems easy


  • It is not free hence you have to buy the program

For what are you going to use the program?
  • writing engineering text book which frequently requires wrting mathematical expressions involving algebraic, triagonametrical and calculus. For this, special symbols are needed

  • class notes an dpresentations during my conferences this request sucks that I should talk to be able to download the stuff this doesn't make sense

  • Use of software on my computer at home and write some of what I needed mathematical equations with thanks very much for your help and the inauguration of this program on the Internet to facilitate such operations

  • i am going to write various mathematics formula and ry to learn how to edit them in word so that a catalogue is create and can be optimmaly used to solutions

  • i am downloading this app for the typing of mathematics so that i can write the notes of important questions and make a book of mathematicss

What similar programs have you used?
  • No any similar programm has been used and not aware about other programms as mathtype is more popular in word as well as is is user friendly

  • I don't use now.I use just equation symbol in Microsoft word. Can u give me free download for this Math type.I would like to get it to write paper.

  • none this is my first experience with an equation editor. I have tried using microsft word but it is too difficult and confusing for me. I hope this program will help

  • logarithm, integration, differentiation, determinants ,matrices,vectors,three dimentional geometry, probability, limits,relations and functions

  • Yes I used one very old. I would like to download new one for the better performing and having complete symbols and functions. Please ecept it

What do you like most about this program?
  • it makes it easy for me to input fomulas and equations when writng my notes since i am currently doing studies infested with much presentation of data in formulas.

  • very powerfull and usefull program which should be installed on computers dealing with math problems and also for teachers preparing lessons for students

  • good Mathematical expressions and Equations for academic research and well defined formulars that can assist academitians in academic writing

  • It simplifies writing mathematical equations, symbols and garphics. I realy appreciate the programmers for suppling such a woderful software. Yes

  • its simplicity to understand, interpret and apply. The packages are comprehensive. it is very useful to teach,prepare lecture notes and slides.


MathType is a tool destined to create mathematical and scientific equations. The application has a lot of symbols such as root, infinity, pi, Greek and Roman alphabet symbols and templates for Algebra, derives, statistics, matrices, sets, trig and geometry. You can make a complex equation with its panel of buttons and menu by using the mouse or the keyboard.

This software is a fantastic tool for creating expressions that require mathematical notation in Word processors, web pages, presentations and MathML, TeX or LaTeX documents. MathType is the professional version of the Equation Editor included in programs such as Microsoft Word, Corel WordPerfect, AppleWorks and other similar products. Once this program is installed, you have the Word processing environment, an additional toolbar to introduce equations and mathematical expressions, to number equations and to insert references to sections and equations.

Handwriting recognition

With MathType, entering math operations and equations by hand like if you have a pencil and a paper is possible. You can do this by using your mouse, or also devices such as a touchscreen or a tablet. The last two devices will provide you with better results than the first one, but all of them are acceptable.

However, the use of handwriting recognition is recommended for short math expressions since with longer ones, it becomes more difficult. Nevertheless, you are free to combine point-and-click windows and handwriting to get betters results. You can use keyboards shortcuts for every symbol, command and template. With the additional toolbar, you can save expressions and use later, when you want. The use of this handwriting feature is only available in Windows 7 or later versions.

MathType 6.9 Features

Below you will see the unique features that MathType provides you with:

  • Possibility of handwriting recognition by using your mouse or other devices
  • It works with more than 700 websites and applications
  • It works with several applications of the MS Office suite: Word, Power Point
