Cognitive Models and Problem Spaces in "Purely Random" Situations.
Lecoutre, Marie-Paule
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v23 n6 p557-68 Dec 1992
Reviews research indicating that students' cognitive models hold random events to be equiprobable Examined 87 students between the ages of 15 and 17 to determine whether masking a random event using geometric figures would affect the students' view of the event as equiprobable. Results indicated that masking overcame the equiprobable bias of the students. (25 references) (MDH)
