LyX is a nice graphical editor designed specificaly to produce LaTeX
output, and includes lots of features for creating textbook quality math
formulas.

Try
http://www.lyx.org/
http://www.18james.com/lyx_on_aqua.html
http://www.troubleshooters.com/lpm/200210/200210.htm

This (http://www.perce.de/LaTeX/math/Mathmode-TeX.pdf) is an excellent
guide to using LaTex for math. The pdf was created from LaTeX, and
represents what is possible. It is from the site http://latex.s-v-p.de/ by
Herbert Vo. As a rule, with the LyX editor you do not enter as many LaTeX
commands; in many cases, none at all.
