Mathematics is the Queen of science. Mathematics is highly abstract. It is concerned with ideas rather than objects; with the manipulation of symbols rather than the manipulation of object Teaching Mathematics requires highly talented stuffs from the Teacher. This situation can be balanced by using Innovative methods in Teaching Mathematics. These Innovative methods increase the Self Confidence of the Teacher thereby maintains the Teaching standards of Teacher. Innovative methods include the usage of new techniques in Teaching Mathematics. The students of this generation have a special empathy to this Innovation. Mind mapping is a visual form of note taking that offers an overview of a topic and its complex information, allowing students to comprehend, create new ideas and build connections. Through the use of colours, images and words, mind mapping encourages students to begin with a central idea and expand outward to more in-depth sub-topics. By applying this method to primary students it has its maximum effects by creating vast evolution in the field of Education. It makes them function more efficient. Practising this method is economically beneficial. It also helps the students to reach the Zenith. This research aims at finding the effectiveness of using Innovative method Mind Map in Teaching Mathematics.
