Main stages of research:
1. Actualization of the problem (to identify the problem and determine the direction of future research).
2. Identify areas of research (to formulate the main questions to which we would like to find answers).
3. Selection of the research topic (try to define the boundaries of the research as strictly as possible)
4. Development of a hypothesis (to develop a hypothesis or hypotheses, including unreal – provocative ideas should be expressed).
5. Identification and systematization of approaches to the solution (choose research methods).
6. Determine the sequence of the study.
7. Collection and processing of information (to record the acquired knowledge).
8. Analysis and generalization of the received materials (to structure the received material, using known logical rules and methods).
9. Preparation of the report (to define the basic concepts, to prepare a report on the results of the study).
10. Report (protect results publicly in front of peers and adults, answer questions).
