An abstract (from the Latin "referre" - to report, to report) is a small written work devoted to a certain topic, a review of sources in a certain direction. Usually the purpose of an abstract is to collect and systematize knowledge on a specific topic 500 word essay or problem. The topic of the essay should captivate, first of all, the student himself, because he will have to work hard on its disclosure. Topics for essays are usually suggested by teachers. The student chooses an interesting topic for him from the general list and coordinates his choice with the teacher.
