Have you considered a live version, MathCad, for example?
I am creating some math materials for students now and have some questions about the process. Ultimately, I'd like to make an entire workbooks for grades 9-12 and high school calculus.
- What software program do textbook companies use to create something mainstream like Stewart Calculus?
- What is the best program for putting graphs into MS Word? I've found Graph 4.3, which is OK, but not great.
- Currently, I know about LaTeX, MS Word, and Adobe InDesign for creating print materials. Any opinions on those? Or should I use a mix of them?
Any other insights or tips would be great!
I worked for a science publisher that used exclusively LaTeX. It may take some time to learn, and it may not always be easy to change the standard layout, but the output has professional quality.
Gnuplot is one of the most powerful free graph-plotting programs, but I have not tried combining it with Word.
This is a word processor designed for scientific writing.
The first edition of Stewart was written using it.
Karl Smith say he used it to write fifty different textbooks.
If you want to stay with WORD then add on MathType.
