Probability in Elementary Schools: A Guide for Teachers.
Ropes, George H.
This publication is a response to the need expressed by elementary teachers for a concise introduction to intuitive probability concepts and how they may be presented. Instruction is divided into five concept groups including: (1) basic understandings; (2) the probability of simple events; (3) the probability of compound events; (4) counting; and (5) sampling. Each concept group section contains a discussion of concepts, activities, and classroom games and projects. A bibliography is included. (MN)
