Abstract [en]

This paper reports on a survey on teachers’ content knowledge of probability and with connecting such knowledge to the teachers’ level of education, teaching years and self-assessments of probability concepts. Twenty-nine teachers in compulsory school answered a questionnaire calling for reflection on these issues. The teachers’ responses disclose that the teachers find probability to be a difficult subject. The survey reports that the teachers have low confidence in understanding key concepts of probability and that they have difficulties in applying the concepts in probability tasks. The test indicates no correlation between teaching years and confidence or between teaching years and results on the probability tasks.
