Saskia kindly did two complete mind maps with quotes as well as four mind maps with notes but no quotes. These are for you to add your own quotes. Remember; transforming these by changing them enables you to remember things better!
Click to download or print off. I’ll also add to the S4 @Donovan page available through the top menu.
I adapted a chart I found down South. There are twelve things to do (over the holidays for example) to practice different aspects of RUAE. Try them out. If you have any ideas/suggestions let me have them.

Reviewing your notes might make you feel prepared, but turning those notes into activities will help you better retain what you’re studying. Here are four active strategies to try.
- Ask yourself (or have someone ask you) questions on the material.
- Visualise the information. If it lends itself to a diagram, draw it out or just create a mental image to recall later.
- Apply the information to a common metaphor. For example, if you wanted to remember that plants take in water, sunlight, and carbon dioxide and put out oxygen, you could think of the intakes as cake ingredients, the bake time as processing by the plant, and the finished cakes as oxygen.
- If you use flashcards, don’t remove the cards you get right when you quiz yourself. Keep them in the deck so you build a stronger memory for all the cards.
These active strategies force you to engage with the information you’re trying to learn.
