Shaughnessey, J. Michael
Mathematics Teacher, v86 n3 p244-48 Mar 1993
Presents research findings related to students' intuitive ideas about the concepts of chance to inform teachers how students form their concepts of probability and statistics. Discusses adolescents' conceptions of uncertainty, judgmental heuristics in making estimates of event likelihood, the conjunction fallacy, the outcome approach, attempts to change probabilistic beliefs, and teaching methods.
