Easy Math Typesetting
My brother, who is a math teacher, is switching from Word to OpenOffice / Google Docs and is looking for a free solution for mathematical typesetting.
We looked at a bunch of solutions, but then we realized that it is hard to beat the simplicity of a free and super-easy web-based solution: use Wolfram Alpha to produce typeset formulas as GIF files.
Good enough for math homework!
Update Feb 2010: now that the Google Chart Server supports TeX typesetting, things are even easier. Try the Math Formula Editor here.Posted by David at July 8, 2009 04:23 PM
