Misconceptions of Probability: An Experiment with a Small-Group, Activity-Based, Model Building Approach to Introductory Probability at the College Level
Shaughnessy, J. Michael
Educational Studies in Mathematics, 8, 3, 295-316, Oct 77
The author presents an approach to the teaching of undergraduate introductory probability and statistics. He also presents experimental evidence that suggests the approach helps students rely upon probability theory in making estimates for the likelihood of events rather than rely upon heuristic principles which may bias probability estimates.
