"Mind map is one of the best way which will help you in your studies."
When i was studying 'O' Level and 'A' Level, some of my friends used to tell that "I hate science because I hate (memorizing) Biology" and also the other subjects like history they used to say the same thing everyday. They always thought that the subjects with big notes, (eg: Biology, History...) can only get studied by reading it again and again and again and again...! But that opinion is totally .
Then How is it possible to remember those notes without reading them again and again?
Well, for the above question there are several answers. I.e there are several way to study those notes in effective ways rather than just reading them repeatedly. In this article I want to give you the best ways in those severals, I.e Mindmap.
What is a Mindmap
A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea. Especially in British English, the terms spidergram and spidergraph are more common,but they can cause confusion with the term spider diagram used in mathematics and logic. Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid tostudying and organizing information, solving problems, making decisions, and writing.
How to create a mind map
- 1.Generate a topic. What will be the focus of your thinking? Your topic should be no more than a few words. By keeping your topic simple, you will be able to understand more aspects of it through the map. A broader topic will give you more with which to work in the future.
- 2.Place that topic in the center of the page. Ideally you want to draw this topic, writing the topic in bold letters should only be used for things without a visual form.
- 3.Start writing what comes to mind. As you generate thoughts, draw branches from the main topic. Keep it to as few words as possible. As you mind map more, try to continue to narrow the amount of words per branch. Print clearly.
- 4.Countinue branching. Make more branches off of your main topic. Try to extend your thoughts from one idea to the next. Draw lines between thoughts to create lateral thinking.
- 5.As new ideas come forth, draw a different branch from your topic and expand as nessasary.
- 6.Repeatuntil all your ideas appear on the map.
- 7.When you are finished mapping, carefully study the connections that you have made between your thoughts and ideas and try to relate them
