The current LaTeX implementation is a great first step but it breaks the markdown code-block syntax and is very awkward to use. It feels like a patch. In mathematical groups the symbols are part of the conversation not a separate block of code. An equation as a separate block is used when it's big and unwieldy to make it more readable but otherwise equations and symbols are treated as part of the sentence and it should be possible to mix with other markdown structures like lists.

It would be awesome to support $$...$$ for inline and $...$ for display (or the TeX short cuts $...$ and $$...$$). Even better would be also supporting some \begin/\end environments like align and gather of AMS math.
