Psychological specificity of mastering mathematics by 6-7-years-old children

Some results of an experimental psychological-pedagogical study of the way 6-years-old children learn mathematics are presented. Six-years-olds (first-form pupils) studying in an experimental Viet-Nam school have been found to be capable of efficiently mastering the mathematical concepts included into a programme based on certain fundamental notions of contemporary mathematics. A conclusion is made that a larger share of theoretical knowledge should be integrated into the primary school programme on mathematics.
