Making Conclusions



identify each group by naming what is similar

You group things in order to find a set of groups that all have something in common and what they all have in common will be the answer to your question. You may need to organize your things in several different ways before you have a set of groups that works.

Once you have what you feel is the right set of groups, the next step is to identify each group by giving it a name. The name can be a noun or a phrase. Although identifying your groups is a separate step in the procedure, in practice you shift back and forth between grouping your things and identifying your groups.
