Resources for Giving Talks and Poster Presentations

This is a collection of resources and links for preparing and giving talks and poster presentations that I had put together for my undergraduate research groups.


LaTeX is the standard for typesetting mathematical material. It is used for everything from mathematical books and professional articles to exams, homework assignments, and class handouts, to presentations and posters. Anyone who wants to present mathematical material in a report, talk, or poster, should learn the basics of LaTeX.


Beamer is the LaTeX version of PowerPoint, and the standard tool for mathematical presentations. Below are some links on getting started with beamer. Most assume some basic familiarity with LaTeX.


The best tool to produce mathematical posters is beamerposter, a package that works in conjunction with beamer. Below are some links.
