Term Definition
operation

a term from the work of Jean Piaget (1896-1980) referring to a mental process by which a learner can combine separate and transform information in a logical way. In the earlier stages of learning Piaget uses the term preoperational to refer to the way in which such a learner is confused by appearance struggles to decentre their thinking and muddles issues about causation and consequences owing to a nonlogical approach.
