In this paper, the quality of primary education in Mexico is dealt with A longitudinal study was carried out with the aim of analyzing the process of development for various mathematical skills with .rst grade students; 169 students from a low social and cultural stratum participated. An instrument referred to criteria and based on task analysis was used to analyze the errors and the correct responses throughout the 2004-2005 school year Results show that students had enrolled with previous academic de.ciencies and developed some skills; however, the levels of mathematical skills were still low at the end of the school term. The implications of these results are discussed and some alternatives for education based on a behavioural model of psychological development are proposed

    ABSTRACT: This chapter presents an account of how research on the development of mathematical thinking has been applied to the practice of mathematics education. The chapter first offers a brief history of the field and then gives a summary of key aspects of contemporary research. Next, the chapter turns to a discussion of three applications: (a) mathematics textbooks, (b) teacher development, and (c) techniques of assessment. The chapter ends with a discussion of the ways in which research gets translated into practice; a reflection on both the power and the limitations of contemporary research for purposes of application; and a proposal concerning the vital role that psychological research should play in the education of teachers, which is arguably one of the key problems--if not the central problem--of American education.
