Abstract [en]

This paper focuses on the learning of probability. The analytical construct of contextualization is used to explain how students deal with compound random phenomenon in an explorative ICT setting. In this setting the students were offered opportunities to interact with different representations of such phenomenon. The analysis follows a specific group of two students. The analysis shows how students’ understanding of the compound events varies with their interpretations of the situation. In particular, we notice how the two students differ when trying to connect theoretical and experimental representations of probability.
