Objectives

In this section you will learn about:

Methods

Use descriptive writing to preview information in the methods section, particularly at the beginning of the chapter.

Later stages of the methods section give more detail about the methods and their underlying assumptions.

Materials

Specially designed materials can be described in stages using an overview such as a diagram or table followed by listing principal parts and finally a functional description.

The Rationale

Use critical comments about materials and methods to justify their selection.
