Charts, diagrams, posters are all visual ways of learning and remembering things. When you turn facts and concepts into something visual, you are actively doing something. So this is an example of learning by doing and seeing. You have also used colour – a different one for each concept, and you have enhanced it visually by enlarging the mathematical symbols.


Here is a colourful poster to help you remember the various mathematical terms that either mean the same thing or are closely related.
