Advances in Mathematics Education

Probabilistic Thinking

Presenting Plural Perspectives

Editors: Chernoff, Egan J, Sriraman, Bharath (Eds.)

  • Encapsulates the dawn of a new phase of research investigating probabilistic thinking in mathematics education
  • Further advances research investigating probabilistic thinking as a mainstream topic in mathematics education
  • Represents a rich repository of a range of studies from a global cast of researchers
  • Presents multiple perspectives (mathematics and philosophy, psychology, stochastics and mathematics education) representing probabilistic thinking in a greater context
  • With commentaries from prominent individuals well versed in mathematics education research
  • Anthological and future-oriented with the explicit purpose of becoming a standard reference book for those investigating probabilistic thinking

About this book

This volume provides a necessary, current and extensive analysis of probabilistic thinking from a number of mathematicians, mathematics educators, and psychologists. The work of 58 contributing authors, investigating probabilistic thinking across the globe, is encapsulated in 6 prefaces, 29 chapters and 6 commentaries. Ultimately, the four main perspectives presented in this volume (Mathematics and Philosophy, Psychology, Stochastics and Mathematics Education) are designed to represent probabilistic thinking in a greater context.
