Command Line
Silent install (for Office 2010 32-bit and Windows 7):
msiexec /I MathematicsAddIns_x86.msi FROMSETUP=1 ALREADYRUNNING=0 DOTNET35=1 WORD=1 ONENOTE=1 /qn

Silent uninstall:
msiexec /X{E2C98732-F973-4985-A9C5-DC06178E16EE} /qn

NOTES:

I downloaded the original media from here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=ca620c50-1a56-49d2-90bd-b2e505b3bf09

With /q option the downloaded MASetup.exe claims that it has the silent install switch /Q. It doesn't work. During install, the media is expanded to several files to users temp folder.

Amongst them are:
MathematicsAddIns_x86.msi and
MathematicsAddIns_x64.msi

The expanded setup apparently installs either of those depending on if you have 32- or 64-bit Office installed, after that it seems to install some DirectX components if needed.

Unfortunately those above mentioned MSI's don't install directly - they claim to need the Setup.exe (which doesn't work silently with normal switches).

I opened MathematicsAddIns_x86.msi in Install Shield editor and looked at the Install Condition section. There were several. From there I could pick some properties that I used to try to make the MSI install directly.

And it works! For example, if you have Office 2010 32-bit installed and Windows 7 (which doesn't seem to need any extra DirectX components in this case), you can use just the MathematicsAddIns_x86.msi for the installation with the switches mentioned in the top of this post.

A small correction to the above:

Actually you also need to install the DirectX included with the expanded media. Luckily this works with the silent switch:
DXSETUP.exe /silent

For our use, I simply made a script that has both install commands after each other.
