The idea behind this project was to visualize the existing CBSE Class IX Economics
textbook, to make it easier to understand and grasp the basics, terminology and concepts
without getting into mundane prose given in textbooks.
The concept came to my mind while working on a classroom project to visualize economic
data. When we started visualizing the data it was very important for us to know what exactly
were we visualizing, this required in depth knowledge of the field, the acronyms,
terminology etc. To my dismay I realized I had a very little idea about it, even the economics
learnt back in school seemed hazy and wasn’t helping much. So, I resorted to the textbooks
to get my basics right. But, reading the same old textbooks again was an excruciatingly
painful task. That’s when i remembered the technique I used back in school to ease my
learning experience. I used to read the chapters and simultaneously make graphical notes
which would reduce a ten page long chapter to some 2 page long notes, made by me, and
then I never had to touch the book ever again. Those notes helped me year long.
Hence, the idea to visualize the book.
