Concept Mapping I: Plant Way of Life
Introduction: Concept mapping is an important learning tool that can be used in a variety of situations. A concept map is a visual representation of how ideas (=concepts or propositions) are interconnected. To make a concept map, prepare a list of the main ideas/concepts/propositions you are interested in. Then, select the most inclusive (largest) of these and write it in a circle at the top of your paper. Then, begin connecting the remaining ideas by writing them below and connecting the ideas with a line or arrow. Label the line to represent the interconnection. In class, I will show you an example making a concept map to the following ideas in the Plant Way of Life notes.
Now, continue to fill-in the concept map (Concept Map II, Concept Map III)
