This is mostly useful for classroom teachers, but I thought it's a really NEAT idea -- and could be adapted to other situations. The students "doodle" and color in the notes however they like, which makes them REMEMBER better!

I just got a tiny glimpse of some of those domains of math in university (such as complex analysis, measure theory, and game theory) — and they are fascinating!
