    • OBSERVINGQualitative• Descriptions that cannot beexpressed in numbersQuantitative• Numbers or amountsUsing one or more of your senses to gather accurate informationCircularLiquid
    • INFERRINGThe girl is celebrating her birthday.*This is an inference because we are explaining theobservation of the balloons as a sign of a birthday.Explaining or interpreting the things you observed
