[racket] Scribble and/or Latex?

Scribble does not have great support for typesetting math. I would love
to use Scribble for all my typesetting needs. However, I have to
fall back to Latex whenever I need to typeset math.

There are ways to insert Latex in Scribble. Others on the list might
have more information about how to do that. 

If you have the time, I recommend learning both. Scribble and Latex have
a lot of similarities, so learning them side-by-side can even be useful. 
You'll also discover the relative strengths and weaknesses of each.

But as a former HtDP'er, I've been looking for an excuse to get back into Racket, and I thought learning Scribble might be a good route to take.  I've poked through the docs a bit, and can't find any reference on math typesetting.  Can that be done in Scribble?  Or is Scribble not the right tool, and should I commit my learning efforts to Latex?  Or both?
