[LON-CAPA-users] Math Display Problem

I am having trouble getting equations to render properly. I have done this before, and have even tried directly copying code I have used before, but cannot get it to display properly.

This is one of the equation definitions:
  $PwrIntegral = "p(x) = \frac{1}{T} \int_0^T v(x) i(x) dx";

This is the radiobuttonresponse code using it:
    <radiobuttonresponse max="10" randomize="yes">
            <foil location="random" value="true" name="foil1">
                <startouttext />
                    <m eval="on" display="mathjax">$ $PwrIntegral $</m>
                <endouttext />
            <foil location="random" value="false" name="foil2">
                <startouttext /><m eval="on" display="mathjax">$ $RMSIntegral $</m><endouttext />
            <foil location="random" value="false" name="foil3">
                <startouttext /><m eval="on" display="mathjax">$ $AvgIntegral $</m><endouttext />
            <foil location="random" value="false" name="foil4">
                <startouttext />bla<endouttext />
            <foil location="random" value="false" name="foil5">
                <startouttext />This is foil Five, and it is currently set to "false."<endouttext />

I can't send a snip of the display to the listserv, but it looks something like this:
p(x) = rac1Tint0Tv(x)i(x)dx

It responds to the _subscript and ^superscript, but completely ignores the \frac and \int commands. I know I must be doing something dumb, but don't know what, and don't understand why a different expression I pulled from a correctly working problem does not work in this one.

If anyone can see what I'm doing wrong, please help. The exam is scheduled for first thing Tuesday morning...
