To fix this, do the following

  1. In Word, save your document using the Save As function
  2. Select PDF as the file type.
  3. After you select PDF as the file type, select the options dialog.
  4. In the options dialog, select Bitmap text when fonts may not be embedded.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Save your PDF. You should now be able to select the text in your equations.
