Abstract or Summary
  • This study was designed to investigate whether the conservation of substance, weight, continuous quantity, discontinuous quantity, number, area, distance, length, and two-dimensional space are developed in sequence in the acquisition of conservation operations. More specifically, the purposes of the study are two-fold: (1) To assess the sequence and rate of conservation acquisition among children in the Korean culture; and (2) To assess whether the factors of age, gender, maternal attitude, and socioeconomic status are related to the performance of Korean children on conservation tasks. The findings of this study were as follows: 1. The older group of children clearly performed better than the younger children on every task, indicating that there was an age-related developmental pattern. 2. There were no significant differences between the two gender groups, indicating that the development of cognition in children is not related to gender. 3. Conservation task scores differed significantly among three different social classes. 4. Children with mothers reflecting a possessive attitude obtained higher scores on conservation tasks. 5. There was a significant interaction effect between age and social class. 6. There was a significant interaction effect between age and maternal attitude. 7. There was a significant interaction effect between gender and social class.
