Has anyone used Mind Maps to teach advanced mathematical topics?

If so, how did it work, was it useful or a waste of time?

Thanks for any insights.

Regards -A

mind maps are a waste of time in general. – akkkk Dec 11 '12 at 17:03
Nice question! I don't think they're necessarily a waste of time...I'll look into it... ;-) +1 – amWhy May 21 '13 at 0:11
@amWhy: Thanks. I am actually very interesting if anyone is doing this. We have successfully used them in other areas and I think it may be possible for organizing math too, including for taxonomies of entire subjects or classifications. Regards – Amzoti May 21 '13 at 14:19
