Picture Perfect Equations

Scientific word One of the hardest things to do with a PC is to write math and science equations, with many teachers resorting to hand writing the figures for handouts, tests and worksheets. There’s an easier way, and it involves using MacKichan’s Scientific Word 5.5 program. Based on the LaTeX scientific typesetting standard, it can create everything from square roots to integration symbols and make them look as good as the rest of the document. When you’re done, it can be saved as a Acrobat .pdf or Web-based HTML file. All the major symbols have shortcuts so once you get the hang of Scientific Word, writing everything from the laws of thermodynamics to Fermat’s last theorum becomes second nature. Schools can get Scientific Word for $100 for students and $150 for teacher use, or try the free download for 30-days.
