MathType is a software tool you can use with Microsoft Word to create documents with mathematical equations. You can then generate MathML code for the equations. In this blog I will show how you can do this.
Inserting an equation in MathTypeAfter inserting the equation you want to convert to MathML, click on the equation and open the MathType editor. Go to Preferences > Cut and Copy Preferences. Now select MathML or Tex radio button and from the dropdown select MathML 2.0 (namespace attr) and select OK.
Now you can copy the equation from MathType dialog and paste it onto a text editor. I have used notepad for this. It will give the MathML code for the equation you have created.
If you are using this code in Moodle pages there is a setting you need to change which I will discuss in my next post.
