Program Idea – Put Latex in Powerpoint

I’d like to be able to write and annotate PowerPoint slides with mathematical notation (LaTex). Because my Econ teacher uses PowerPoint but you can’t easily put complex mathematic equations in PowerPoint. I’d also like more tools for annotation, like customizable zoom, font changing ability, and ability to view all notes for a presentation in one place.

I’ll make a computer program sometime to let me do this. Or just save LaTeX as an image and then import the image to the slide.

Edward Tufte has a great article about the pitfalls of Powerpoint here. If you liked it, I would suggest this book, also by Tufte.
