    If you have Microsoft word 2007, then it should have a really good equation function, similar to latex.

    Simply type ALT and = at the same time, and you will enter equation mode. You can then write in symbols. It's mostly similar to latex, with slight differences. In fact, it's better and faster than latex most of the time.

    If you have a version less modern than 2007, then click insert, then go to object. It should produce a list. On that list there should be something called "equation editor 3.0" or "microsoft equation 3.0". Something like that. If you enter this mode, it allows you to insert mathematical equations.

    Sorry for the double post, but thought I would let the OP know that mathtype supports writing Tex in a document. I just purchased version 6.5c about half an hour ago (only had mathtype lite before that) and it works very well.
