In LaTeX beamer I want to number the theorems, and I used the usepackage \setbeamertemplate{theorems}[numbered], but I want a reverse numbering that 1.1. Theorem., 1.2. Definition etc., not Theorem 1.1. Could someone help me how can I do this? Thanks in advance.

Use the beamer template theorem begin. See pp. 124 of beameruserguide.pdf. The following example is working properly.

\setbeamertemplate{theorem begin}
\setbeamertemplate{theorem end}{\end{\inserttheoremblockenv}}

         The number 2 is a prime.
