### Review

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.
