The study confirms that there are significant differences concerning early mathematical competence with regard to the academic level and children’s chronological age; however, neither gender nor social backgrounds are relevant in that respect. Results show that social background and gender do not represent an explanatory factor related to mathematical competence in initial schooling levels; the opposite happens in later years, which suggests that perhaps it is the quality of the educational action what makes the difference.}, number={3}, journal={Anales de Psicología / Annals of Psychology}, author={Cerda, Gamal A. and Pérez, Carlos and Ortega, Rosario}, year={2014}, month={Aug.}, pages={1006-1013} }
