Graphic technique for math problem solving

  1. May 30, 2004 #1
    Hello , the other day I discover a graphic technique very useful to solve math problems ...
    It has got foundations of different branches of the knowledge ...
    There are a few examples of how to solve math problems
    ahh the technique is "Mind Graph"
    Best Regards

    Oh yeah I probably just dont get it. Anyone want to explain it further ?

    Am I missing something here? I can find no link that explains what these Mind Graphs are and how to create them or interpret them.

    What's going on ?? I don't get it. Looked through 2 examples...found some incoherent scribbles...no obvious solution appeared anywhere !!

    About this method ...
    The first thing that you should know is that you begins putting the topic on the center of the paper
    The center can be a word, a drawing, a sentence, etc
    You can developing that central topic with the help of questions (arrows)
    The growth of the drawing is from the center to the periphery
    It has 3 elements: the boxes, the arrows and the extensions lines
    The extensions lines and the boxes are very similar semantically
    The boxes are to store the information
    The arrows are to extract information (like a function)

    You can see explanation of this method in : http://www.freewarefiles.com/programs.php?ProgramID=9665&categoryid=16&subcategoryid=168 [Broken]
