Abstract: 

We examine probabilistic intuitions and concepts as they relate to children aged 5 to 11 from research over the past 50 years. In the first section, we review the research pertaining to specific concepts and skills associated with probabilistic reasoning. The other section presents a discussion of theoretical perspectives on instruction in probability.
