I have to do a plot outline, can someone tell me, "what the traditional pyramidal structure to map the important parts of the plot" is?

Imagine a triangle or pyramid shape.

Start at the bottom left with setting, introduction of characters, first action and first major conflict. At that point, you'll be about 1/4th of an inch or so up the left side of the triangle.

Rising action (further actions and reactions/conflicts) builds and builds until you reach the top.

The top symbolizes the climax.

Going down the other side are the resolution and conclusion.

Got the image?
