typing math symbols

I was just wondering, how do I type exponants, radicals, etc, on the keyboard? Is there any way I can type them on microsoft word?

I've been typing up some math notes but I'm forced to draw tiny block letters and radical signs and it looks kind of sloppy.

A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm.

I don't have Microsoft Word, but I just read there is an "Equation Editor".   I don't know how old the webpage I was reading was.

Re: typing math symbols

In Word, you can type in the thing that you want exponentiated, highlight and right-click it and edit the font to be super- or sub-scripted.

Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.
