Displaying math formulas

I'm trying to use Marked with MultiMarkdowns Math support but have difficulties getting it to work.

Consider the following example

# Mathematics #

You can also include formulas within a sentence, such as
$x^2 + y^2 = 1$

## Eulers Identity ##

<< e^(i pi) + 1 = 0 [Euler's identity]>>

I tried both styles $$, and <<>>, but none will display the beautiful math formulas I crave so much (much like plants crave electrolytes).

Using Marked 1.4 (221)
OSX 10.7.4
FIle extension is called math.md
Installed mmd is peg-multimarkdown version 3.2
Calling Marked through Sublime Text 2 Build Tool.
Checked Include MathJax from CDN (I also tried without but it didn't change anything)

What am I doing wrong? Missing headers? Wrong extension (I tried .mmd, which Marked does not identify)?

    As long as MathJax is enabled in preferences, you should be able to use this syntax:

     \\[ {e}^{i\pi } 1=0 \\]
     \\[ {x}_{1,2}=\frac{-b\pm \sqrt{{b}^{2}-4ac}}{2a} \\]
     \\[ \frac{H_{U_1}}{H_{U_1}} \\] 
     \\[ $latex \frac{1}{2 \pi} $$ \\]
     You can also include formulas within a sentence, such as \\({x}^{2} {y}^{2}=1\\).

    Should give you something like: http://ckyp.us/F819

    Using \\[...\\] does work.

    I was using the MultiMarkdown Syntax which basically uses <<...>> but it seems this has since been superseded by the MMD 3.0 Syntax.

    So it seems the MMD documentation is out of date. Thanks for your input
