Teachers can also use Piaget's theory, for instance, when discussing whether the syllabus subjects are suitable for the level of students or not. Öğrenme ve beyin arastırmalarında meydana gelen gelismelerle birlikte Yeni-yapılandırmacılık ve doğustancılık gibi yaklasımlar, çocukların okul öncesinde matematik öğrenmesi konusunda Piagetci yaklasımdan farklı öneriler getirmistir.

This process of fitting, modifying or creating gets balanced to reduce and attempt to minimize psychological tension through a process he termed equilibration.
