The aims of this project, sponsored by the Social Science Research Council from November 1978 to October 1981, were: a) to survey the intuitions of chance and the concepts of probability possessed by English school pupils aged 11 to 16 years. b) to establish patterns of development of probability concepts and to relate these to other mathematics concepts. c) to investigate pupil responses to GCE 'O' Level and CSE probability items, with particular references to sex differences. A summary of findings is presented, based on responses of 2930 children.
The CAUSE Research Group is supported in part by a member initiative grant from the American Statistical Association’s Section on Statistics and Data Science Education
