# latex equation with xaringan?

I'm trying to write a xaringan presentation that has some latex equations. This is what I wrote:

# Model without clusters

Let $y_i$ be the standardized outcome for student $i$:

$$y_i \sim N(\mu_i,\sigma) \\ \sigma \sim N^+(0,1) \\ \mu_i = \alpha + \eta T_i + \beta X_i \\ \eta \sim N(0,1) \\ \beta \sim N(0,1)$$



Alas, \\ is not recognized as a line break so I end up with this:

What am I doing wrong?

Most probably, this is happening because \\ doesn't work inside . I recently asked a question, and made a total fool of myself.
