This packet provides two quick tutorials on MathType. Each assumes that you know how to insert MathType equations into your word processor.

The first tutorial (Saving expressions) is a really handy trick that will save you TONS of time.

The second (Notation for systems of equations) is a how-to for something my College Algebra students need to know how to do. Enjoy.

And feel free to ask other how-to questions in the Q&A section; I'll crank out more MathType tricks.
