There is much research that documents what many teachers know, that students struggle with many concepts in probability and statistics. This article presents two sample activities the authors use to help preservice teachers develop ideas about how they can use technology to promote their students' ability to understand mathematics and connect their in-school learning to situations outside of school. The two activities are: (1) Graphing the margin of error; and (2) Sampling distribution of the mean.
