Abstract: 

Pairs of students use the computer software Fathom for working on problems from Exploratory Data Analysis. The exploratory study was interested in identifying how the software as a tool supports or hinders students' thinking. Working styles of students related to distributional thinking in the context of group comparison tasks were studied.
