You can enclose the latex:

   F_2(s) = \frac{r_1}{s+2} + \frac{r_2}{s+4} + \frac{r_3}{s+6},

Then, with point within this block, you can type C-c ' which will allow
you to edit the latex in a latex-mode buffer with proper fontification.

For source code blocks, you should be able to tell it to export the code
as latex:

#+begin_src latex :exports results :results latex
   F_2(s) = \frac{r_1}{s+2} + \frac{r_2}{s+4} + \frac{r_3}{s+6},

and you will get fortification within org-mode if you set
org-src-fontify-natively to be t.  However, there are (currently) some
performance issues with this approach.
