Piaget's theory of cognitive development

Piaget's theory of cognitive development is a comprehensive theory about the nature and development of human intelligence. It was first created by the Swiss developmental psychologist Jean Piaget (1896–1980). The theory deals with the nature of knowledge itself and how humans gradually come to acquire, construct, and use it. Piaget's theory is mainly known as a developmental stage theory.

Even though this child saw the differences as the adult changed the variables in the experiment, this is a clear presentation of the mind of a typical toddler or baby through Piaget's conservation theory. It shows how their mind works through visual representation instead of an actual though process that would take any adult to a logical answer.
