I am preparing a talk for an advanced graduate course in mathematics, where I am supposed to use slides (the Beamer type, not handwritten).

Since it's the first time I'm giving a presentation talk as opposed to a blackboard talk, I was wondering whether any of you have some advice on preparing a good presentation, and presenting it (in particular, if you come from a scientific background).


  • See this question for tips on preparing slides, this question for tips on presenting them. I believe we've already covered general presentation tips here, but if you have a specific question that isn't addressed in those other posts, please edit your question to highlight it and it may be reopened.
