The core of ConTEXt development is focused on the textual aspects of typography in TEX: many features are provided that easily compete with and surpass those of other high-level TEX formats, like LATEX. Progress has lacked, though, on the field of mathematical typesetting; this talk presents a work-in-progress whose final purpose is that of bringing the features of the most common and powerful mathematical packages in LATEX (AMS and Nath) in the form of ConTEXt modules, possibly with the addition of new features in the spirit of interactivity and graphical richness which is typical of the ConTEXt textual features.
