In the fist phase of(More)
The majority of mathematics teachers have received a purely formalistic education, with little, if any, specific training in probability and statistics. Their formalist mathematical background has a negative effect on their statistical reasoning and their development as teachers of statistics.

Statistical data were obtained from 98 Greek pre-service teachers from the Western Macedonia University that formed the experimental group and 132 Greek pre-service teachers from Macedonia University that form the control group, enrolled(More)
DISCUSSION Wang's interesting paper about teaching and using stochastic processes shows that estimating and using transition probabilities is essential, especially in political and social sciences. Predicting the behaviour of a structure (e.g. an educational system, the World Wide Web, a traffic network, an academic organisation) by using stochastic(More)
