Slides

## Slides

LaTeX's article and letter document classes are the most commonly used. There are also report and book document classes, which are good for very long documents.

Here is an example of how to use the slides document class, which is useful for producing transparencies for the overhead projector.

\documentclass{slides}
\begin{document}
\begin{slide}
\begin{center}
A sample slide
\end{center}
\begin{itemize}
\item Slides automatically come out
in a large font.
\item This font is expressly designed
to be legible when displayed via
do not put too many lines on one slide.
\end{itemize}
\end{slide}
\end{document}


Here are some warnings about using slides for a lecture:

• Do not put too much material on one slide.

• Do not put everything you are going to say on the slides.

• Do not use too many slides.

If you want to make very fancy slides, you might try the seminar package. If you are going to display a talk via computer projection, you might try the package pdfscreen or the package prosper.
