I am using beamer to create slides for presentation. I am trying to put 4 equations with numbers from 1 to 4 in two pages. in short, how can I extend a frame to two pages?

You can use the option allowframebreaks; notice, however, that this deactivates overlay specifications:

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}[allowframebreaks]
text
\end{frame}

\end{document}

Perhaps you could consider manually splitting the equations in two frames in order to keep overlays functional?

After a comment, it seems that all that is required is an overlay specification:

\documentclass{beamer}          

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\begin{itemize}
\item To evaluate the performance of the algorithm, different Evaluation metrics can be defined.\pause 
  \begin{enumerate} 
  \item<+-> $a = b+c$
  \item<.-> $h= d+k$
  \item<+> $a= c^2+d^2$ 
  \item<.> $m= h+c$ 
  \end{enumerate} 
\end{itemize} 
\end{frame}

\end{document}

After a new comment, I'd recommend using two frames and stepping the enumi counter:

\documentclass{beamer}          

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\begin{itemize}
\item To evaluate the performance of the algorithm, different Evaluation metrics can be defined.
  \begin{enumerate} 
  \item $a = b+c$
  \item $h= d+k$
  \end{enumerate} 
\end{itemize} 
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}
\begin{itemize}
\item[]
  \begin{enumerate}
  \setcounter{enumi}{2} 
  \item $a= c^2+d^2$ 
  \item $m= h+c$ 
  \end{enumerate} 
\end{itemize} 
\end{frame}

\end{document}

Thanks Gonzalo , my code is like this : \subsection{Metrics of Evaluation} \begin{frame}{Metrics of Evaluation} \begin{itemize}[<+->] \item[] To evaluate the performance of the algorithm, different Evaluation metrics can be defined. \begin{enumerate} \item [a = b+c] \item [h= d+k] \item [a= c^2+d^2] \item [m= h+c] \end{enumerate} \end{itemize} \end{frame} I want the first two equation be in the fist slide with number 1 and 2, and the next two equations be at the second slide with number 3 and 4. [allowframebreak] it only shows the first sentence : To evaluate .... –  shahb Dec 2 '12 at 3:26
    
@shahb please see my updated answer. Is it something like that (in the second example code) what you need? –  Gonzalo Medina Dec 2 '12 at 3:39
    
I updated the code and it keeps giving this error : Runaway argument? {Metrics of Evaluation} \par \begin {itemize} \par \item To evaluate \ETC. ! File ended while scanning use of \frame. <inserted text> \par <*> ...s/miktex/defence_file/test/defence_test.tex –  shahb Dec 2 '12 at 3:44
    
@shahb In my code I don't have any \par commands and also notice that I used \frametitle; please process my code exactly as it is. –  Gonzalo Medina Dec 2 '12 at 3:50
    
I used your code and its working. But I want the first two equation be on a different slide something like this : slide 1 ----> 1. a = b+c 2. h = d+k slide 2---> 3. a= c^2+d^2 4. m= h+c since my equations are big, so i want to take them apart two to different pages. –  shahb Dec 2 '12 at 3:52
