Moreno, A. & Vallecillos, A. Exploratory study on inferential concepts learning in secondary level in Spain . (Vol.1, p. 343) A summary communication of first results obtained in an exploratory study on the learning of statistical inference basic concepts for Spanish students in secondary level. This is part of an ongoing research project, with the aim to determine problematic areas, the students’ difficulties, favourable learning environments or methodological questions that can serve like a base to the teaching of statistical inference in secondary schools. 3. Posters Bakker, A. Statistical minitools in a learning trajectory . (Vol.1, p. 383). A display to show the use of three very simple minitools (Java applets which can be downloaded from ), with well chosen problems, to develop statistical notions in an informal way. There is a progression from dot plots to histograms to scatter plots. Müller H. & Lynnwood. L. Peer-assessment of data handling (gr 5’s) . (Vol.1, p. 409). Observations by South African teachers of students, learning experiences when engaged in peer assessment of data handling activity. Students were required to assess each other’s methods step by step. Ritson, R. Finding links between early work in probability and the teaching of fractions . (Vol.1, p. 415). Is it possible to link probabilistic ideas with early work on fractions? Yes. This answer results from a pilot study based on Irish primary-aged students. Van Dooren, W., De Bock, D., Verschaffel, L. & Janssens, D . Searching for the illusion of linearity in probabilistic misconceptions: a literature review . (Vol.1 p. 421). Investigation of misconceptions about proportion in geometry and then in probability has shown similar misconceptions in both areas. Empirical research based on the conceptual analysis is planned. 3.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
