For presentations, I currently use LaTeX and the class Beamer. The output is a PDF I can page through using forward and back keys on a pointer. The presentations contain mostly figures, some formulas and text. I would like to add animation, sounds, Manipulate-able figures. I would like to do this entirely in Mathematica and in the notebook interface rather than a PDF. Does anyone have an example of a presentation they have given in this way that they could share? There are many sample presentations others have made with LaTeX and it is an easy way to learn how to do it yourself. I haven't been able to find similar sample presentations done with Mathematica. I've read some posts on this forum on this topic, but I haven't seen any examples that are similar to a traditional powerpoint presentation. I've also read the technotes: http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/TechNotes/5299/ and checked out very nice presentation materials from others given using Mathematica. See for example, Roman Maeder's: http://www.mathconsult.ch/math/stuff/ and Paul Abbott's (who replied to a similar post a while back): http://internal.physics.uwa.edu.au/~paul/teaching.html But these are not in the form of a traditional slide presentation. I am asking this in the most naive possible way (I am new to Mathematica). How am I supposed to stand in front of an audience with my pointer and go through these presentations (without using a keyboard and mouse to expand cells, shift enter, etc)? Apparently all the presentations at the Mathematica conferences are done in Mathematica. Maybe that would be a good place to look. Are any old presentations available online? All I've seen are videos of Steven Wolfram presenting his book, but he doesn't appear to be using a Mathematica notebook to present his slides. Thanks.
