Sample text

If I eat a sweet the number of sweets reduces – therefore each time I take something away the number I am left with is always smaller than the number I started with. g. animal includes all cats and dogs, and dogs includes spaniels, Dobermans etc. but all dogs are included in the general class of animal. Egocentricity Diminishes in this stage The formal operational stage (12–16 years) The dependency on concrete objects diminishes in this stage and children are able to solve hypothetical problems or imagined problems that they are unable to see.

According to Piaget, cognitive development is an inevitable process – as the brain matures the thinking matures, and the understanding increases. However, Piaget also saw interaction with the environment as an important factor in cognitive development. Biological maturation takes place over a period of time. Piaget thought that children’s cognitive development was based to a large extent on their biological development. Piaget thought that cognitive development took place in stages, each new stage becoming possible as the brain matures.

Use of real materials Children below the formal operational stage cannot solve problems in an abstract manner. They will achieve more by solving problems using actual materials. For example, children trying to understand which objects will float and which will sink may not be able to identify them from a list of objects. However, if they have the materials and place them in a bucket of water they will learn the properties of objects which float. Similarly if children are trying to learn to count in 3s they may find this difficult to do in their heads.
