Stochastics and the professional knowledge of teachers
AbstractTeachers widen their professional knowledge and their pedagogical practice by writing and publishing about their experiences in preparing and developing activities in statistics and probability. In this study data were collected and then analysed by triangulation. The role of reflection in teacher development, the relation with the curriculum and the relation with the collaborative work emerged. The results promote the development of the teacher’s professional role to create the teaching and learning process in terms of children’s cognitive development. Teachers worked within many constraints but still created very sensible solutions for practical situations and are active innovators of the curriculum.
