The abstract, if requested by me, the instructor, is placed at the beginning of the second page of the paper, after the title page. The abstract summarizes the question being investigated in the paper, the methods used in the experiment, the results, and the conclusions drawn. The reader should be able to determine the major topics in the paper without reading the entire paper. Basically, an abstract is a one paragraph synopsis of your entire paper. Compose the abstract after the paper is completed.
