Module 15 Lesson 2 Notes Transcript Slide 1 Module 15 will cover Development and Aging. In lesson 2, we will talk about the time from adulthood to death. Slide 2 What do these words mean? What is development? What is aging? Development is the process of growing, maturing, and progressing. Aging is the biological and social process of growing old. These do not end when a child enters adulthood! They can actually continue throughout your entire life. Slide 3 In this module, we will be discussing the three main stages of adulthood: Young adulthood Middle adulthood Late adulthood Slide 4 Young adulthood is the time from about 18 years to 34 years of age. This is a period of major transitions. It is the height of physical condition, strength, and stamina. Senses are sharp. Memory and cognitive abilities peak. This is the best time to have children, as fertility is prominent. Young adulthood is a time of ambition, achievement, and financial independence. This is the time when many life choices are made. Many young adults choose a career, a spouse, start a family, and purchase a home. Slide 5 Middle adulthood is the time from about 35 years to 64 years of age. This is a period of stability in life. Most middle adults are socially responsible. Physically, there is loss of strength and coordination. Vision and hearing begin to diminish. Memory loss begins. Body processes begin to slow down. Early in this stage, there is a feeling of "I can do anything!" Later in this stage, it becomes "Is this all there is?" Middle agers often search for immortality and may even struggle with a mid-life crisis.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
