Combinatorial reasoning. Another characteristic of formal operations is the ability to think in multiple causes. Teenagers can invent a way to represent all possible combinations, between three and four cards. There is also a greater probability that they generate the combinations in a systematic way.
If a turtle doesn't have a shell, is it naked or homeless?
Reasoning about probabilities and proportions. Primary children generally have limited knowledge of the probability. Piaget's theory helps explain why.
If in a box I have 20 red marbles and 20 blue marbles, what is the probability that I will get a blue marble?
If the student responds that there is a 50 and 50 probability of taking each marble, he is in the stage.
Now, I will continue with the assimilation according to Piaget. Through assimilation, we incorporate new information or experiences to our existing ideas. In early childhood, children are constantly assimilating new information and experiences to build their knowledge about the world.
Accommodation. The adaptation process involves altering existing schemes or ideas as a result of new information or new experiences. New schemes can also be developed during the learning process.
If a dog has 4 legs, will all the animals have 4 legs?
Adaptation, which is the adjustment process by which the knowledge of the individual and the information that comes from the environment are adapted to each other. In turn, within the dynamics of adaptation operate two processes: assimilation and accommodation.
Oh no sweetie! That is not a spoon, is a shovel. And that is not cereal, is sand!
