    Abstract : Children’s early mathematics learning and development have become a topic of increasing interest over the past decade since early mathematical knowledge and skills have been shown to be a strong predictor of later mathematics performance. Understanding how children develop mathematical knowledge and skills and how they can be supported in their early learning could thus prove to be a vital component in promoting learning of more formal mathematics.

  3. 3. Inequality in Educational Outcomes : How Aspirations, Performance, and Choice Shape School Careers in Sweden

    Author : Frida Rudolphi; Jan O. Jonsson; Michael Gähler; Anthony Heath; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; achievement; aspirations; attainment; educational choice; ethnic inequality; performance; social origin; Sociology; sociologi;

    Abstract : This thesis examines different aspects of educational inequalities, drawing on the notion that inequality in educational attainment depends on two separate mechanisms: that children from advantaged social backgrounds perform better at school (primary effects) and tend more than others to choose to continue in education given performance (secondary effects). Study I shows that the long-term decrease in social class inequality in the transition from compulsory to academic upper secondary education since the middle of the mid-20th century up to the late 1990s, seems to be related to both declining primary and secondary effects.
