Evaluation of Education in mathematical programming in students of 5th year of Primary Education in Spanish Educational Centers


The objective of this research project was to discover the benefits that students of each gender received through education in mathematical programming, for which two groups, experimental and control, for the 3,795 students from 147 participating schools, were created. Two measurements were carried out through the administration of the Battery for the Evaluation of Mathematical Competence (Becoma On), a pretest or initiation of the project and a posttest or finalization of the educational project in mathematical programming. The results showed statistically significant differences between the experimental and the control groups, and between boys and girls. The integration of technology in Education is a reality and the promotion of gender equality in scientific and technical disciplines is a key premise of a fully inclusive educational system.
