Our Philosophy

Founder Matt Baker sums it up like this:

"I've loved charts and diagrams ever since I was a young child. Like many others, I'm what you'd call a visual learner. I have found that in early grades, visual materials tend to be incorporated often. However, once a person reaches the higher grades, learning becomes almost exclusively based on reading texts and listening to lectures. There is often very little visually-based material available on more advanced subjects, particularly in the humanities. I started UsefulCharts is to help change this situation. Obviously, one cannot learn everything they need to know about a subject simply by looking at a chart. However, I find that charts often work well as both a starting point and an overall framework that can be continually returned to as one incorporates new material."
