One precious little girl, charming responses, and thirty well spent minutes constitutes a profitable Piaget project. The time spent on interviewing a child for cognitive development has been educational, and gave me a firsthand look at how a child's brain evolves with age. N.G., 4 decades, 11 months, embodied all that I could ask to get a kid to conduct such an interview on. Nearing her fifth birthday in the upcoming week, her age is fundamental between ages three and seven, providing me with advice that is surely conducive to our study. Within minutes upon entrance into the interview it was apparent that my kid dropped into the preoperational period of Piaget's cognitive growth. More especially, N.G. dropped to the next half of the preoperational stage. What originally tipped me off was that her first reaction to my conduction of this conservation of length demo. Upon putting out two identical straws, her logical for why one straw was more than another was, "it is not to the one's bottom". This is a perfect example of an intuitive guess, though demonstrating a lack of logic in the announcement. An essential thing of the preoperational phase of development is that kids cannot yet manipulate and change information into logical ways which was clearly seen via the conservation of number demonstration. Though N.G. managed to correctly identify that each row nevertheless contained an equal amount of pennies on being distributed out, it required her to rely on the number of pennies in each row. In the preoperational stage of development children do not yet understand logical psychological operations such as mental math as presented from the demonstration. Another important component that leads me to strongly support N.G.'s involvement from the preoperational.
