Definition
• 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. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mind_map) • Originated in the late 1960s by Tony Buzan Mind Maps are now used by millions of people around the world.

Characteristics
• • • • • Graphical (Distinguish words or ideas with colors & symbols). Hierarchical or tree branch. Allows for creativity. Associates words with visual representations. Focuses on only one word or idea versus concept maps that connect multiple words or ideas.

Usage
• Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid in study, organization, problem solving, decision making, and writing.

7 Steps to Making a Mind Map
1. 2. Start in the CENTRE of a blank page turned sideways. Why? Because starting in the centre gives your Brain freedom to spread out in all directions and to express itself more freely and naturally. Use an IMAGE or PICTURE for your central idea. Why? Because an image is worth a thousand words and helps you use your Imagination. A central image is more interesting, keeps you focused, helps you concentrate, and gives your Brain more of a buzz! Use COLOURS throughout. Why? Because colours are as exciting to your Brain as are images. Colour adds extra vibrancy and life to your Mind Map, adds tremendous energy to your Creative Thinking, and is fun! CONNECT your MAIN BRANCHES to the central image and connect your second- and thirdlevel branches to the first and second levels, etc. Why? Because your Brain works by association. It likes to link two (or three, or four) things together. If you connect the branches, you will understand and remember a lot more easily. Make your branches CURVED rather than straight-lined. Why? Because having nothing but straight lines is boring to your Brain. Use ONE KEY WORD PER LINE. Why Because single key words give your Mind Map more power and flexibility. Use IMAGES throughout. Why Because each image, like the central image, is also worth a thousand words. So if you have only 10 images in your Mind Map, it's already the equal of 10,000 words of notes!
