Piaget's theory of conservation in children is tested to determine its validity. Piaget's cognitive model is explained in terms of its two fundamental concepts, namely, assimilation and association. The paper then moves on to describe the writer's experiment, in which he tests the conservation theory. The paper also points out cognitive differences between children and adults, as learned from his/her experiment.

From the Paper:

"Piaget's theory of conservation in children was tested to determine its validity. It is an attractive model to test because it produces (or at least should produce) unambiguous results. Moreover, while these results in and of themselves are fairly simple, they help us to understand a process that is at the same time both very important to us and highly complex the ways in which children's cognitive skills develop."
