Abstract [en]

The aim of the present paper is to shed light on mathematical knowledge for teaching probability. In particular we investigate critical instances when a teacher tries to keep track on the idea of sampling and random variation by allocating the discussion to an everyday context. The analysis is based on a certain episode of a longer teaching experiment. The analytical construct of contextualization was used as a means to provide structure to the qualitative analysis performed. Our analysis provides insight into the nature and role of teachers’ knowledge of content and teaching. In particular, the study suggests the idea of a meta-contextual knowledge that teachers need to develop in order to keep track of the intended object of learning when allocating their teaching to an everyday context.
