MathType Lite (for Students)
I just found out that after the 30-day trial of MathType is over, MathType reverts to “Math Type Lite.” This version is just like the Microsoft Equation Editor… only some of the functionality of MathType is missing. (Thanks Vera for pointing out MathType Lite!) Here’s the link to the MathType 30-day trial site.
It was always a pain to get students to “turn on” the equation editor in MS products (usually you had to go back to the installation CD to do it).
MathType does work on Macs and PCs… I’m going to ask my online Calc students to begin using it, now that I know they can all get it. With MathType + Jing, there’s nothing that couldn’t be said on a message board now (using an image of the MathType equation).
Has anyone out there tried MathType 6 yet? I’m in the middle of a large project and I don’t want to switch… but I am curious!
