Isn't it ironic that iBooks Author comes with a template called Elementary 
Algebra (with no math in it)? :)
For the sake of completeness, however, it should be mentioned that iBooks Author 
integrates with MathType:


>From the same web site:

“Within iBooks Author, an Insert MathType Equation command appears on the Insert 
menu if MathType is installed. Choosing this command inserts an equation into 
the document at the insertion point. This is similar to how MathType works with 
Apple's iWork '09 office suite. In order to make the math accessible to users 
with vision impairments, users can associate text to be spoken for each equation 
using Apple's VoiceOver screen reader software.”

I have never used it and I have no idea how well it works.
