Creating Printed Materials for Mathematics with a Macintosh Computer.
Mahler, Philip
This document gives instructions on how to use a Macintosh computer to create printed materials for mathematics. A Macintosh computer, Microsoft Word, and objected-oriented (Draw-type) art program, and a function-graphing program are capable of producing high quality printed instructional materials for mathematics. Word 5.1 has an equation editor for creating expressions which involve mathematical symbols and constructs such as rational expressions, radicals, matrices, integral and summation symbols, etc. The tables feature facilitates the placement of graphics anywhere on the page. The styles feature supports the creation of documents with uniform appearance. The advantages of object-orientated graphics are discussed and massaging the output of a function-graphing program is illustrated. Different configurations of hardware and software are also presented. (Author/JLB)
