Assignment:Creative thinking via connecting Ideas
This exercise allows participants to analyze creative thinking through connecting ideas into a “mind map.” The mind map was developed by Tony Buzan. It is used to develop solutions to a problem and to stimulate creativity. It can also point out when the problem solvers have fallen into a rut in their thinking.
Start with a large piece of paper. Choose some real life problem to work with. This does not have to be a huge problem, just realistic. It may be one for which you have previously been unable to find a lasting solution. In the center of the paper write the problem. If you have difficulty defining the problem, write a few key words or phrases that describe the problem.
Next, generate as many solutions as possible. Write these around the central problem. Draw a circle around each solution to separate it from the others. When you are done writing solutions, read each one and think about it. Then draw lines from the problem in the center of your page to each idea/solution. Your page should begin to resemble a wheel with spokes. This is an inductive search for solutions. Note any patterns among the solutions. Last, can you connect any of the solutions to form an improved solution to the problem? Write that improved solution if you found one.
Based on the mind mapping you did in this assignment, did you notice any “mental sets” among the ideas you generated to solve the problem? Yes or no? Briefly describe any mental sets you saw. (Examples: solutions borrowed from past problems, solutions that always use the same resource or actions to solve the problem, etc.) How do you think these affected your ability to solve this problem?
Post the results of your mind map exercise to this discussion and include the actual mind map you drew as an attachment to your post. You may wish to scan the piece of paper on which you drew, or you could also recreate your mind map using Microsoft Word or another application and upload that file as an attachment.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
