Abstract

This paper describes the development of Master – a computer-mediated tool for learning and research in probability reasoning. The objectives of this software are 1) to explore how levels of interactivity and dynamism in visual presentations of probability influence levels of dynamism in student mental models of probability and 2) whether levels of dynamism in mental models influence probability reasoning. We expect that there is a relationship between levels of interactivity and dynamic movement of representational resources and flexible and dynamic mental models that allow for better reasoning about probability. Hence, we are developing a computer program to investigate this issue. Not only will Master support learning in probability, it will help us investigate whether and how dynamic and interactive visual presentations influence probabilistic thinking.
