Summary: This paper contributes to the discourse in stochastic education of how young students deal with learning settings that allow a databased approach to probability. By using the microstructure of arguments by {\it S. Toulmin} [The uses of argument. New York, NY: Cambridge University Press. (1958)], it explores which arguments students use and which role they play in the learning process. The data stems from design experiments with students at the beginning of their stochastic career (aged 11 to 13) and is analysed with an interpretative approach.
