Creator: Green, D.R.
Publisher: Royal Statistical Society (Great Britain)
Description: This article, created by D.R. Green, describes an investigation of what concepts and intuitions concerning random processes are present in the minds of children of varying abilities across the 11-16 age range. The ability to list permutations, combinations and arrangements is also being investigated. The author states, "Over the past two decades the topic of 'Probability’ has been brought into the mathematics curriculum but it may be that this is more an empty gesture rather than a sound strategy." This article can help to alleviate many of the struggles in teaching probability concepts. The article is pitched at a more elementary audience, but is still a perfect resource for almost anyone teaching in the field.
