Summary: Probability has almost vanished from curricula internationally. This article seeks to address the reasons for probability vanishing from curricula by investigating 9th grade students' emerging probabilistic thinking while working with a TinkerPlots combinatorial problem. In this article attention is paid to the interplay of the semiotic means of objectification involved in probability experiment. Results from this research study with grade 9 students suggest that the interaction between semiotic means of objectification help students to modify, or refine their probabilistic thinking about combinatorial problems.
