Paradoxical games as a didactic tool to train teachers in probability


Carmen Batanero, Jose Miguel Contreras, José António Fernandes, Mario Miguel Ojeda


Carmen Batanero (Spain)


In this paper the contents needed in the didactical preparation of teachers to teach probability are described and the possibility that classical paradoxes of probability offer to organise didactic activities that can help carry out this training are suggested. Results of working with one such activity in courses directed to teachers in México, Portugal and Spain are presented.
