Research is an activity aimed at obtaining new knowledge about an object or phenomenon existing in the surrounding world.
The project aims to create something that does not yet exist in order to change the surrounding reality or solve the problem.

A simple diagram of the purpose of the research work (project):

2. Add the name of the study object.
Objectives of the work.
The objectives of the research work are all successive stages of theoretical and experimental work of the student from the beginning to the end.
To determine the objectives of research, you need to consistently answer the question: “What do I do to achieve the goal of the study?»
Tasks are recorded in the introduction of the research work immediately after the goal.

induction and deduction
These methods are used to study specific phenomena on the basis of which hypotheses are formed. These research methods help not only to collect facts, but also to check them, systematize, identify non-random dependencies and determine the causes and consequences. These research methods make it possible to make a logical study of the collected facts, to develop concepts and judgments, to make conclusions and theoretical generalizations.
