Abstract/Summary Research on informal statistical inference has so far attended little to developing students' reasoning about samples and sampling. This SRTL-7 pre-paper will prepare the ground for analyzing children’s reasoning about sampling when making informal statistical inferences in a collaborative, project- and inquirybased learning environment. Using data from a design experiment in Israeli Grade 5 (age 11) classrooms, we focus on the emergent reasoning of two boys working with TinkerPlots on investigations with growing sample size.
