PME Stochastics Teaching and Learning Discussion Group
From the early research into stochastic thinking, notably the seminal
investigation into probability understanding by Piaget and Inhelder two major strands of
research have developed, which have gradually expanded to include statistics and
combinatorics. One has been concerned mainly with psychological aspects, particularly
decision-making in an uncertain environment, the other mainly with pedagogical aspects.
The PME Stochastics Working Group was established in 1997 with the specific aim to link these two research streams and to bring to PME researchers in statistical education in areas such as Psychology, Education and Statistics. Its aim is to serve as a focus for members interested in the psychology of the teaching and learning of probability, statistics and combinatorics. It maintains an informal network between PME Conferences by means of an electronically distributed newsletter. It particularly seeks to bring together interested people from all language groups, and does its best to provide translation facilities as appropriate.
