Class Mind Maps

Native mind map files

This year, I am using for the first time, a new mind mapping program called Freeplane. This is a free, open source program you can install on your computer, but it requires you to install Java, if you don't already have it installed. You can download the program here.

Once you have Freeplane installed, you can download the mind maps I have used in class. Due to the way Freeplane packages, you need to install each embedded image as a separate file, so to make this easier to manage, I have packaged all of the mind maps as compressed archives (e.g. a ZIP file). This single file has every mind map and every image for the entire semester.

Archive of every mind map: TGZ file format and ZIP file format. (up to date for entire semester)

PDF versions of mind map files

You can also download copies of every mind map in PDF file format. These contain all of the same content as the native files, but they cannot be manipulated or edited. These are available in a single archive or for individual classes:

Archive of every mind map in PDF form: TGZ file format and ZIP file format. (up to date for entire semester)

You can also download: a single, large PDF file containing every mind map (up to date for entire semester)

PDF versions for individual classes: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
