Default Summary or Purpose!

Help! My son has been chosen for the science school fair. However, teacher has asked him to do a summary on his project. His science project was on: Hamster running through maze. His purpose: to see if hamster through maze and if the most often he does it, will he do it faster the next time? Now is the summary different from the purpose? Please help him, he is confused!

Thank you

Default Yes...

Yes, the summary is different from the purpose. The purpose states only what you are trying to find out, prove, and possibly disprove. The summary is a complete overview on the entire experiment, highlighting the key and most relevant points. I hope this helps.

Thumbs up help has arrived

totally understand. comon confusion. no, the summary is not the same as the purpose. the purpose is what the experiment was for. what are you trying to do? the summary is basically the experiment summed up. you know how you summarize a book or paragraph? just to it to his project! GOOD LUCK!
