I am using the article document class with amsthm. I would like number the theorems/corollaries/examples, etc., consecutively as follows:

1.1 Theorem

1.2 Example

1.3 Example

1.4 Proposition

However, what my LaTeX renders is

Theorem 1.1

Example 1.2

Example 1.3

Proposition 1.4

How do I get a numbering as in the first?
