Building an Equation from Scratch
Though Word 2010 provides some common built-in equations, chances are that if your
content requires this kind of high-end equation, you will probably need to build many of
your own. To help you create your equations, the Design tab offers all sorts of tools you
can use to add the various elements to your equation. In the Symbols group, you’ll find a
large collection of math-related symbols and structures. To access the symbol sets, click the
More arrow in the Symbols gallery. To access additional symbol sets, click the arrow next
to Symbol Set, as shown in Figure 18-3. For a list of symbol sets and their descriptions, see
