This seminar will report the results on an intervention in which children were taught about randomness, sample space, and the quantification of probabilities. Their performance in tasks assessing understanding of these concepts was compared to the performance of two groups, one that participated in problem solving sessions working on problems that did not involve randomness and one unseen control group. Results showed significant gains by the intervention group in all the measures.
