The fourth stage is secondary circular reactions which occur from 4-8 months of age. Infant becomes more object-object oriented. However, infant 's schemes are not intentional or goal-directed.

Santrock mentions about object permanence in chapter five and it is the understanding that objects continue to exist even when they cannot be seen, heard, or touched. Infants tend to have an unpredictable life and difficult time to understand the world around them because they do not have the ability to comprehend it. According to John W. Santrock, he says, “Object permanence is just one of the basic concepts about the physical world developed by babies. To Piaget, children, even infants, are much like little scientists, examining the world to see how it works. ”(Pg.141)
From the DVD-Video, he gave different objects in the form of sticks, coins, and play dough to children between the ages of 4 years and 9 years old to see how they perceived things and how their perceptions differed from that of adults. One major difference that was brought out was that of transitivity and reversibility, where Jeffrey, Meredith and Ethan (all 4 years old) could not hold two relationships in mind at the same time. They had not achieved transitive thinking, even when presented
This is the peak of their emotional and intellectual development. They are just “forming the ability to think abstractly with more complex understandings of logic and cause and effect”(Jean Piaget Biography). This is why, for example, children 12-13 start to learn Algebra. They are able to understand abstract concepts and apply them to hypothetical situations. Children

Me and math been butting heads every since I was in elementary school; Math wasn 't my strong suit what so ever. Every time I was in math class in my early days me and a couple of my friends would always ask the teacher "why are we learning this," "we will never use this in our lives." Looking back on those days now I was wrong; we do need math in our life even the simplest form of math. I 've learned this semester that math is an essential tool in life; to communicate with others or to function in life we need math. How I felt about Math I never liked math ever since my first encounter with it in elementary school.
How to apply Cognitive Theory in real world teaching It is very important to carefully assess the children’s current stage of cognitive development. With the help of this, teacher can arrange the lesson and tasks according to their development level.

For example, in the heading “Many students aren’t ready”, the author states “Some of them didn 't take enough math, some took the wrong math and some managed to pass the classes without learning the math”. The evidence explains that even though a student may pass a particular math course, they aren’t prepared to take college level math or even understand the concept of that math course. In the heading “Your child needs math every year” the author explains that just because some students took a higher level math in seventh or eighth grade and are able to “fulfill minimum admission requirements for all but the most selective colleges by the end of junior year” doesn’t mean they should take a break once they become a senior. Once they do take a break then taking college level math will be hard for
A key to effective PMII is the selection of peers to participate in the intervention (Appendix A). First, it is important to select peers who exhibit good social/language skills; have positive social interactions with the learner with ASD; are generally compliant with adult directives; attend school on a regular basis; have similar schedules/academic groupings as the learner with ASD; and express a willingness to participate. After selecting the peer, one must plan for the actual training session. Peer training sessions should be based on the individual needs of the learner with ASD.
275). Children between these ages are not able to control their emotions and reactions to certain situations. It is a practice and developmental maturation known as effortful control. So under the age of seven this control is not yet present. Even though Berger says that temper tantrums should subside and emotions should become more regulated around the age of five, it still takes time to develop and master.
