Default How to create math graphs and geometric figures?

I'm trying to write a math workbook for students, SAT type questions.
Unfortunately, I've run into some trouble drawing graphs and creating
triangles with angle measures. I know the MSW has a draw feature, but
I was hoping for a program such as MathType, an easy to use plugin.
Drawing the shapes and using text boxes seems extremely time
consuming.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd enjoy getting your feedback. I've tried
about 40 different searches on Google, and I haven't found anything
suitable.

Andy, it is indeed time-consuming, but that's exactly what I did
when I was teaching high school math. MathType, as you
discovered, isn't intended for drawings and likely never will be.
It can create a blank grid for students to graph on (see the
tutorial at www.dessci.com/tutorials). If you don't want to use
Word's drawing tools, I suggest trying the Peanut Software apps.
There are 10 of them, and they're all free, and updated often. I
don't know the URL, but do a Google search for "Peanut Software".
It's something like ...exeter.edu.uk...
