Casting light on probability misconceptions – Stephanie Budgett

Seeing is believing! Stephanie Budgett (University of Auckland) cast a light on common and widespread probability misconceptions.

Teaching probability is difficult. Learning probability is difficult. We all have misconceptions that are remarkably resistant to change. This workshop Stephanie presented common probability misconceptions from a variety of disciplinary areas. She explored innovative software and tasks designed to address these common misconceptions. Participants in the workshop used Pachinkogram software and activities to explore these issues.
