Visual Problem Solving

Making a problem more visual means to create diagrams, charts or sketches that show different aspects of the topic or question than would be displayed in written words or in talking about the topic. Visuals use another part of our brains and will thus help most of us in coming up with creative solutions not otherwise so easily seen.
