    In future please add a minimal working example to show what you have tried.

You need to add \setbeamertemplate{theorems}[numbered] to your preamble:

enter image description here

Here is a full minimal working example:



    This is the beginning of Theorem 1.

  • Thanks! Do you know how I make the beamer number the definitions in the same way as the theorems? Sep 15, 2016 at 3:17

    @FrodeBjørdal Did you try? When the numbering of theorems is enabled all of the pre-defined theorem-like environments share a common counter. When asking questions please, at a minimum, test a minimal working example. This will help you fine-tune your question and make it easier for people to understand what you are asking and make it easier for them to help you.
