ab: 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.
