background image Development It isn’t equal to maturation.  Normal development requires different experiences. What is Schema?
What is Schema?
Ways of looking at things. Piaget said that kids have schema. As they 
get older, they obtain more schema. We learn when things do not live 
up to our expectations. 
Example 1:
When a small kid first learns to grip something then drag/ walk with it 
and realizes it follows the kid, the kid wants to keep grabbing things 
and taking it with them. However, their schema gets broadened when 
the kid grabs a dog for instance and it doesn’t want to go with the 
child. Then the child learns that not everything they grab can come 
with them.
      2 Ways to change Schema 1.  Accommodation: Data do not fit current schema
2.  Assimilation: New data that fits into old schema

Helps sex organs become male. Without this, a female will be produced
because a female’s energy is greater than a male’s.
Before sex organs are developed, they look the same. The similar 
organs are called Primordial Gonads. If Hy comes into play, the 
Primordial Gonads turns into testes and without you get ovaries.
