Abstract: 

This case study report describes a training activity for in-service teachers working on a project related to statistical literacy. Collected data from the solutions to a problem given to the students are taken into account. The problem was chosen to give teachers the opportunity to reflect on their methods for teaching statistics and probability. Results about student understanding of statistical and classical probability and about the teacher methodologies to present these key concepts are described.
