Is there a template that allows me to create slides with only some simple formulas at most?

Assuming your LaTeX distribution has includes Beamer, here is a simple plain beamer presentation of a slide with an "equation".




Each slide is a \begin{frame} - \end{frame} Frame titles are added by \framettitle{} within each frame. You can also create a title slide using the \author{} and \title{} in combination with \titlepage in a frame.

Hi Peter Jansson,if you feel it's worth while you can include this link which has a good collection. latextemplates.com/template/beamer-presentation – texenthusiast Mar 17 '13 at 7:20
@texenthusiast Thanks for pointing out the link. I will add it but you could also add it as a comment directly to the question if you like. – Peter Jansson Mar 17 '13 at 9:42
@PeterJansson Perhaps $a=b$? – Marc van Dongen Mar 17 '13 at 10:30
@MarcvanDongen Thanks, I was not originally thinking in terms of a minimal example in every sense of the word but why not :-). I decided to go with the LaTeX shorthand instead of TeX dito even if it is sligtly less "minimal". – Peter Jansson Mar 17 '13 at 10:52

You'll find quite a few samples installed as part of your distribution.

Have a look in
