Piagetian Conservation in College Students: A Classroom Demonstration.
Shimoff, Eliot
Teaching of Psychology, v25 n1 p48-49 1998
Outlines a simple classroom demonstration that illustrates Piagetian conservation. Piagetian conservation refers to the illusion of an increase in mass by changing an object's form. This demonstration, done by forming an ellipse with an extension cord, shows that college students are as susceptible to this effect as are young children. (MJP)
