This book does break it down for math, but for somebody who is wanting soething to use to make notes this is the wrong thing gor you.

This is a book on using Post-Its to break problems down into their most basic format. You can rearrange them, you can move them, you can use them in various formats to get at the solution. It sounded like an intriguing idea, but the book didn't live up to the idea. The author spent a considerable portion of the book describing techniques like The Swap Sort and Information Maps -- to the point where I felt like the book was starting to repeat information we'd already been given several times over. The illustrations showing the different techniques were excellent, though. What was missing were real world experiences of all kinds that would have showed how the techniques could be used. This would have helped break up the repetition of similar items and helped make the examples stick better. There's just one example near the end of the book, too late really to be of any help in understanding the concepts. Also missing is what should be the most important part of the book -- an explanation of problem-solving and how it can go wrong when people make it too complicated. This section is only very brief before it slides into the techniques. The entire book simply need more of everything.
