ab: The aim of this work is to present a few ideas on teaching children the
initial basic concepts of statistical knowing and related problems. To
date, studies on the teaching of basic concepts have generally been
concerned more with the intrinsic aspects of the concepts themselves
than with the problems connected in understanding them. At first we
analyse the difficulties linked to the identification of the
statistical datum from a psychopedagogical point of view, then we
present the problem of misinterpretation of statistical information
linked to the tendency to re-attribute synthetic values to single
statistical units. Both considered aspects are onjectives of
mathematical programs of the Italian Primary School (age 6-10).
