    Just Google it. Word has a built-in equation editor.

    insert-> object -> Microsoft equation editor

    You will need to scroll down a list to get to the Equation editor

    MS Word for Windows 7.0 has a built-in equation editor that is much better than its earlier versions. At the top menu bar select 'insert', then on the r.h. side select 'Equation'. You have to play with it a bit to find everything (like where the vector notation is, and how to enter derivatives, etc). Once you experiment a bit, it comes fairly intuitively.
