Abstract: 

This is an historical overview of research on the learning and teaching of probability. Research will be classified chronologically as Phase 1, the Piagetian Period; Phase 2, the Post-Piagetian Period; and Phase 3, the Contemporary Period. The research of each of these phases will be analyzed and we will identify the theoretical developments and implications for teaching and learning that have been associated with each phase.
