You know, you don't have to use TeX for very long before you'll find you 
can "read" mathematical expressions right from the TeX source file, just 
as if they were already translated into mathematical notation, and also 
also enter them into the source file (compose them) fluently straight 
from the keyboard, as if you were writing them out.  Just as a trivial 
example, you can read 

      \sqrt{ x^2 \over \alpha + \beta^3}

just as you'd read the corresponding math, and type it also, with hands 
on keyboard, no clicking and dragging each item with the mouse.  Working 
with more complex structures soon becomes equally easy.

Do you perhaps mean TeXShop, as part of the MacTeX distribution on the 
TeX Users Group CD?
