2. Begin with the Central topic at the center of the paper. E.g Kinematics. Use graphics to enhance the idea.

3. Branch out the main ideas from the Central topic. E.g Dist/ Disp, Speed/velocity, Acceleration. Use thick branches for the chief ideas. Subsequently, use thinner branches for sub ideas.

4. Use diverse colours for distinctive branches. This will allow it to become easier to link and connect ideas.

5. Retain one phrase per branch and keep the word on top of the branch. Keeping it to one word will allow generation of additions ideas.
