An Analysis of a Misconception of Probability among Future Mathematics Teachers
Jendraszek, Patricia
Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, v1 n1 p36-45 Spr-Sum 2010
Probability is receiving increased coverage in all levels of education. Knowledge of the Law of Large Numbers may be an important factor in developing a true understanding of the subject. Study results evidence a lack of awareness of this fundamental principle among teachers of mathematics. Study results also suggest that additional probability preparation in teacher education may address this deficiency and allow probability to be taught more effectively.
