This research is inspired by the first book in the series launched by Reidel on mathematical education. Freudenthal (1983) expounds his philosophical approach in great detail considering many topics in mathematics but excluding (perhaps surprisingly) probability. The paper is presented in three parts which are kept succinct. After showing the relevance of didactical phenomenology, a perspective on approaches to probability is given as a framework for the experimental research which has been undertaken.
