I have seen some slides that look close to notes. For example,this one. I wonder what templates they are created? Not seem like by beamer, as there are more contents in each slide and not fancy at all.

beamer is the right tool. – Harish Kumar Sep 25 '12 at 14:01
"there are more contents in each slide and not fancy at all" compare to beamer. – Tim Sep 25 '12 at 14:02
This looks a use of the slides class – Andrew Swann Sep 25 '12 at 14:14
Possible with beamer with its plain frames. – Harish Kumar Sep 25 '12 at 14:24
The linked document was indeed produced with the slides class, as shown by the source code: icmslides6.tex – diabonas Sep 25 '12 at 16:01

Here is example code using slides

$y'''+4y''+3y'=x^2\cos x-3x$
First, we solve for $y_c$. The auxiliary equation is 
m&=&0, -3, -1
Hence $y_c=c_1+c_2e^{-3}x+c_3e^{-1}$.\par
For the left side, the annihilator will be 
$$(D^3+4D^2+3D)y$$ $$=D(D^2+4D+3)y$$

Note: You will often have to manually break the equations to keep them on the slide.

For some reason or the other, I don't get the landscape to work on my compilation??? Weird. – azetina Sep 25 '12 at 15:55
