Suciati; Kartowagiran, Badrun; Munadi, Sudji; Sugiman – International Journal of Instruction, 2019
To understand the concepts or principles in mathematics, children who have a concrete operational stage need physical objects that can bridge abstract concepts in mathematics. This research aims to evaluate the influence of coastal contextual learning media on a child's understanding concept in the material of numbers counting operation. This…

Love, Tyler S.; Strimel, Greg – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2013
Exposing students to the application of math and science through a design-based activity can make them more technologically literate and teach integration between the STEM disciplines at an early age. This article discusses an activity that originated as a portion of a green residential house project conducted by the authors with their high school…

Smith, Eric D.; Lillard, Angeline S. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2012
Piaget (1962) asserted that children stop engaging in pretend play when they enter the concrete operational stage because they become able to accommodate reality and no longer need to assimilate it to their wishes. Consistent also with the views of Vygotsky, discussion of pretend play in developmental psychology is typically confined to early…

Fah, Lay Yoon – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2009
The science curriculum in Malaysia emphasizes the acquisition of scientific skills, thinking skills, and the inculcation of scientific attitudes and noble values. Besides that, the acquisition of scientific and technological knowledge and its application to the natural phenomena and students' daily experiences are also equally emphasized. The…

Cil, Emine; Cepni, Salih – Online Submission, 2012
The basic determiner for the school in which the children who completed their primary education will in at an upper education level in Turkey is the entrance exam carried out nationwide. The items of national exam, called as LDE (Level Determination Exam) which the primary education pupils (aged between 12 and 15) will participate in Turkey were…

Brittan, Elizabeth – Journal of Psychology, 1979
Provides data incongruent with Piaget's idea of a concrete operational stage. Shows no clear-cut termination of preconceptual thinking and no simultaneous conceptual development in the three content areas (number, space, and time). (Author/RL)

Bliss, Joan; And Others – Journal of Educational Television, 1983
Details Piaget's four stages in the cognitive development of children--the sensorimotor period, pre-operational stage, concrete operational stage, and formal operational stage--and discusses their implications for the planning and design of programs for instructional television, and possible effects on mental development and the cognitive…

Carrier, James A. – ProQuest LLC, 2010
Many students encounter difficulty in their transition to advanced mathematical thinking. Such difficulty may be explained by a lack of understanding of many concepts taught in early school years, especially multiplicative reasoning. Advanced mathematical thinking depends on the development of multiplicative reasoning. The purpose of this study…

Hawkins, Vincent J. – Education, 1982
Research on Piaget's four stages of cognitive development has shown that although nearly everyone passes through sensorimotor, preoperational, and concrete operational stages, most do not reach the stage of formal operations. Those people who do attain formal operations seem to have a curiosity factor not operative in those who don't. (Author/BRR)

Schwartz, Maurice L.; Slesnick, Irwin L. – Journal of Geological Education, 1973
Describes the rationale and structure of a newly developed earth science program for elementary school children (K-3). The activities involve pre-operational and concrete operational stages, progressing from one to the other. Children show sustained interest and enthusiasm as they investigate landforms, the moon, fossils, and weather phenomena.…

Petrosky, Anthony R. – Language Arts, 1980
Discusses classroom literary practices related to teacher questioning, retelling, literalism, and figurative language for children in the concrete operational stage; concludes that recent research on response to literature may say as much about what children are taught to do as what they do developmentally. Offers suggestions about teaching…

Kozoil, Micah E. – Journal of Developmental Education, 1989
Discusses the learning needs of students in the concrete operational stage in mathematics. Identifies the phenomenon of reduced cognitive performance in an out-of-class environment as the "Cognitive Doppler." Suggests methods of reducing the pronounced effects of the Cognitive Doppler by capitalizing on the students' ability to memorize…

Lee, Kil S. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1982
Eight boys and eight girls from a rural elementary school participated in the investigation. Specific heuristics were adopted from Polya; and the students selected represented two substages of Piaget's concrete operational stage. Five hypotheses were generated, based on observed results and the study's theoretical rationale. (MP)

Huber, Leonard N. – Classroom Computer Learning, 1985
Discusses Piaget's pre-operational, concrete operational, and formal operational stages and shows how this information sheds light on how children approach computers and computing, particularly with the LOGO programming language. (JN)

Parton, Becky Sue; Hancock, Robert – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2008
Very young children learn by exploring their surroundings, mostly by playing, during which they construct mental representations of the world. In fact, prior to Piaget's formal operational stage, children need concrete, hands-on experiences rather than abstract concepts to support more natural learning, developing, and thinking. In terms of…
