MindMap for Basic Mathematics Project

I learned a lot from the class that I took on Online Learning and Teaching this semester.  We used the book Understanding by Design by Wiggins and McTighe.  This course has revolutionized the entire way that I think about teaching and learning.  As of late, when planning lessons, I keep finding myself needing to list the big idea, the misconceptions, and the essential questions.  I’ve also found this to be a good way to organize my own learning.  This book is truly a great read.
As part of this course, we had to design a demo course using the ideas in the book.  To present my course, I decided to use a mindmap, rather than a PowerPoint presentation.  I thought I would post it here as just a little sample of everything that I have been working so hard to do this semester.
