Revision tips for a visual learner?

Showing 1 to 7 of 7

The only way I know to revise visually is mind maps- but for subjects like Maths this is tricky! Does anyone know of any other techniques a visual learner can use to revise?? Thank you:):)

-watch video of someone going through a maths problem ie how someone works out a and b in a simultaneous equation a couple of times till you get the hang of it and do it yourself too....thats what i do

-timelines are useful not just for history but for science ie the stages of cell replication

- mindmaps are very  useful

Many people often create pictographic mind maps. This is where they draw pictures to connect to a selection of information.

In other words for example the thing the mind map was about was a person, and you wanted to say they had two brothers/sisters, you could do one branch with a drawing of two stick people.

This is a visual way, as well as the fact it helps to connect the two things.

If you're a visual learner you must be creative in some way or form..

Drawing diagrams always help.

You could then try and click "virtual images in your mind" of these diagrams.

(A way of remembering them)

Then try to redraw the same diagrams with as many keywords as possible.
