Hard to see what's happening, or what's supposed to happen there, but it seems strange to do a whole page in OO Math. The usual approach is to put the text in a Writer document and intersperse smaller formulas as needed.

A (possibly) useful shortcut with this is to type the math code in Writer, select the math expression, and Insert > Object > Formula (or keyboard equivalent)

Something like this:
