How we see
Children’s view of how we see
has been studied in depth.
Piaget found that young children often made no
connection between the eye and the object.
Many studies of high school students show that only
about 1/3 of students know we see an object by light
coming to our eye from it.
About 1/3 of high school students have no explanation
for vision: “We see with our eyes” suffices.
