Decision Making Under Uncertainty
Abstract: 

I am not an expert in the theory of decision making, rather I am concerned with mathematics education and teacher training. Within the frame of this task one of my special interests is teaching statistics. Statistics - to use a definition of W. A. Wallis and H. W. Roberts - is a body of methods for making decisions in the face of uncertainty., and that is the subject of our conference.
