Kipman, Ulrike; Kühberger, Anton; Pletzer, Belinda – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background: There is little research on how to best introduce children to stochastics. In general, demonstration and concrete experience seem to be necessary to establish good understanding of stochastics in children. Pupils seem to be able to develop an intuition on stochastic thinking when they actively solve probabilistic problems and carry out…
