Experimental Probability in Elementary School
Probability is more increasingly recognized as a priority in elementary school. In this article, the author argues that if students have a strong understanding of experimental probability, notions of theoretical probability will be easier for the student to understand. In particular, students need extensive experience with experiments using objects and simulators, allowing student understanding to be grounded in the concrete, and then progressively built into an abstract principle.
