How would you import LaTeX code into Microsoft Word?

The boredofstudies LaTeX formatting is different from traditional LaTeX, don't use the formatting on this site as guidelines.

Instead, just look up LaTeX tutorials, there are many.

How do you type up inequality signs?

So I have two questions.

1. When I was watching the Latex guide by the UNSW Mathsoc guy, he used the following packages:

Code:
\usepackage{amsmath} % Improves structure of typed out maths
\usepackage{mathtools} % Improves upon deficiencies of amsmath package
\usepackage{amssymb} % Adds some handy symbols to use.
\usepackage{amsthm} % Adds some neat formulas to use, e.g. \begin{proof} etc.

% Below are other packages I suggest you add
\usepackage{geometry} % Default page margins can be altered.
\usepackage{microtype} % Improves spacing between letters.
\usepackage{booktabs} % Improves tables. Can now create without vertical separators.
\usepackage{array} % Includes more options for arrays
\usepackage{paralist} % More flexible use of itemize, enumerate, etc.
\usepackage{color} % Allows for the use of colours!
\usepackage{cleveref} % Better cross-referencing
\usepackage{fancyhdr} % Customise headers & footers in document
I know there's a massive amount of packages, but does anyone have suggestions on which ones I'll need to write a comprehensive set maths notes? Sort of a mini textbook

2. Is there any way to generate very neat graphs?

Like, I could just copy and paste loads of images off WolframAlpha, GeoGebra, (Mac OS) Grapher and so on, but that's going to appear untidy. Plus sometimes they will still have x and y coordinates present and I don't want that.

Thanks

I'd be interested to see how you load the files onto LaTeX.
