It is not a big issue, but it sometimes becomes annoying. The issue is, according to various sources, default maths type setting is \mathnormal, however whenever I write equations the final product becomes as in \mathrm. Is there any way to turn back it to default mode i.e., \mathnormal? By the way, I am preparing a presentation with beamer (if it matters).

What do you mean by \mathnormal? –  Sigur Oct 9 '13 at 14:19
Well, the default format for writing equations. Check here, if you want (en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Mathematics) –  user64066 Oct 9 '13 at 14:23
i think beamer defaults to sans serif, where "normal" (i think) means "upright", even in math. –  barbara beeton Oct 9 '13 at 14:24
You can use an option to the class beamer to change sans to serif. –  Sigur Oct 9 '13 at 14:54
