When attempting to teach people a bit about understanding electronic drawings I always make a point of telling them they need to develop a mental image of what is going on in the various devices. It doesn't matter how 'correct' the image is, just that it gives them a reasonably accurate idea of what to expect coming out, knowing what is going in.
This is especially true of logic diagrams!
That's exactly what you gotta do with math. It's only a language to describe stuff, if you don't have an image, there's nothing to describe!
