Unless your graphs need to do something insane, then the program called Numbers in the iWork suite should work for you. In terms of having all the glyphs necessary to write out complex math equations, those characters are all built right into OS X. For example, open up TextEdit, go the the Edit menu and select 'Special Characters.' There you'll find every character under the sun, and you can save frequently used characters in the 'favorites' area. EDIT: also, don't forget about the awesome graphing program built into OS X!

Do a spotlight search for Grapher. This makes typing in equations a breeze as you can insert the characters right from the keyboard without having to select characters from a palette.

Edit an equation or expression Click the equation or expression. On the Equation Tools tab, under Math Symbols or under Structures, select the math symbols or structure that you want to add to the equation, or type or delete the variables and numbers in the equation. When you need to communicate mathematical equations or formulas, you can do that directly on your Mac without pen and paper. Using OneNote, you can insert fractions, exponentials, logarithms, and other mathematical structures in your notes. On your note, click where you want to insert the equation.

And also, obviously, it graphs stuff too. Much as I prefer to use LaTeX for most mathematical typesetting, I think if you've already got some version of Office you're might be best off using Word and the (free, built-in) Equation Editor. (MathType is effectively a paid extension of that built-in Equation Editor.) You could generate the graphs you need using Grapher (in your Utilities folder, and which is really simple to use), and then export your graphs as images to be added to a Word document.

LaTeX has a pretty steep learning curve, and unless you need your output to look like an academic journal article you might be just as happy with Word.

Grapher is very good for curves, surfaces and a lot of tasks.

2) The best is MathType, all kinds of maths expressions, easy but slow, very convenient with Apples iWork (Pages, Numbers, Keynote). Download MathType (free), full demo for 30 days, then MathType Lite for life, as good as the Microsofts Equation Editor. 3) There is an Equation Editor in Microsoft Office: its an old MathType Lite. 4) I hate the Latex language! I cant learn a new mathematical esoteric language, too old for that! Au revoir, YB24 PS.

Every thing about Grapher.app, free, on. Click to expand.I apologize for any misunderstanding.

I am not a programmer at all (I wish I were). I was actually asking for other users' opinion on the mentioned app; whether it's a good app or not because I'm thinking about buying one myself. Bob cozzi on twitter rdi for mac.

The links provided are just a way so users can find out more about them, in case they have not heard about it, not advertising. Another reason I'm curious about this app is also because it's been featured as one of the Educational apps in Apple's website. Again, I wasn't pretending nor advertising.

I'm just a Mac user (student) who came across into this discussion when Googling about Math Equation for Mac. Sorry for the confusion. I apologize for any misunderstanding.
