Abstract

In the topic study group on probability at ICME 11 a variety of ideas on probability education were presented. Some of the papers have been developed further by the driving ideas of interactivity and use of the potential of electronic publishing. As often happens, the medium of research influences the results and thus – not surprisingly – the research change its character during this process. This paper provides a summary of the main threads of research in probability education across the world and the result of an experiment in electronic communication. For convenience of international readers, abstracts in Spanish and German have been supplied, as well as hints for navigation to linked electronic materials.
