Abstract: 

Research literatures offer discrepant views concerning what understanding of chance entails, its relation to thinking probabilistically, and the nature of alternative interpretations. This study capitalized on the technology of videotapes to closely examine children's interpretations within tasks involving randomness and a qualitative level of differential probabilities.
