Research Papers use sections. -Unlike a traditional essay, research is broken into sections. Each major has its own style (so a physics research paper is quite different from a sociology paper). Our sections for CW1: 1) Introduction and Rationale 2) Methods 3) Results 4) Conclusion(s) 5) Appendix(es) Total length of the paper should be 3-5 pages. 1) the Introduction and Rationale (At least one full page) Before you began your research you probably thought of two important questions: what should I research, and why? Here you can describe your research, explain why your work may be useful or important, and why it is worthwhile to read your work. What can a reader gain from your work? If the length is hard to achieve, consider explaining why the topic interested you, describe your past experiences with this phenomena, or even write a mini-report on the topic using sources you find online. Also, I recommend that any hypotheses are placed at the end of this first section. (A hypothesis = a prediction about what might happen) It totally OK if your hypotheses do not occur! 2) Methods
