A way of representing relationships between ideas, images or words, in the same way that a sentence diagram represents the grammar of a sentence, a road map represents the locations of highways and towns, and a circuit diagram represents the workings of an electrical appliance. In a concept map, each word or phrase is connected to another and linked back to the original idea, word or phrase. Concept maps are a way to develop logical thinking and study skills, by revealing connections and helping understand how individual ideas form a larger whole. Wikipedia
The predicate "acts as" is used to describe roles a concept may play or states in which a concept may exist. For example:
A perceived regularity or pattern in events or objects, or records of events or objects, designated by a label. J. Novak
A (hierarchical) network comprised of concept-terms (nodes) and directed lines linking pairs of nodes; the linking lines are labeled with explanations of the relationship between node pairs.
A specified sphere of activity or knowledge. For example:
The predicate "has" is used to describe properties of a concept. For example:
The predicate "is a" is used to describe sub-types. For example:
The predicate "is also known as" is used to describe synonyms. For example:
The predicate "is composed of" is used to describe whole-part relationships. For example:
The predicate "is included in" is used to describe whole-part relationships. For example:
Labels used to identify various components of a concept map. Names must contain one or more words with each word beginning with either an uppercase letter, a number, or a symbol such as '&', '$', '@', etc.
The Concept to which a statement or proposition is directed. For example, given the statement "Square is a Polygon", "Polygon" is the Object.
A predicate is the verb that links concepts to form a proposition. Predicates must contain one or more words composed entirely of lowercase letters. For example:
Propositions are formed by linking two concepts with a predicate. These become the fundamental units of meaning stored in the concept map.
The Concept about which a statement or proposition is made. For example, given the statement "Square is a Polygon", "Square" is the Subject.
Capstone provides special features if you use certain "well known" predicates. All of these well known predicates are documented separately.
