Abstract: In this reflective paper, I explore the thinking of a group of pre-service teachers as they reason about experimental probability and theoretical probability. I am particularly interested in investigating whether pre-service teachers could construct a bidirectional link between the experimental probability and theoretical probability, similar to the tentative model I introduce elsewhere (2008) for coordinating the two perspectives on distribution. Overall, this research study contributes to understanding how pre-service students can build connections to help teachers conceptualize and support students to embrace elements that act as connections between the two approaches to probability.
