Note: The new macOS version Catalina has removed several components that MathType 7 and previous versions depend on. Unfortunately, if you update your operating system to the current macOS Catalina MathType 7 or any of our older versions will stop running.

Please note that this does not affect MathType for Google Docs, or MathType for Windows and Mac versions which accept 32-bits (up to Mojave 10.14.6). For more detailed information please visit

MathType works with any word processor, presentation program, page layout program, HTML-authoring tool, plus other types of software, to create equations for research papers, class materials, web pages, slide presentations, journal articles and books.

MathType is not RAM-intensive so listing its requirements is not necessary.

MathType does not require Microsoft Office or Microsoft Word. However, it adds a MathType ribbon to Word and PowerPoint 2011 and 2008, and a MathType toolbar and menu to Word 2011 and 2008.
