The Impact of Visualizing Nested Sets. An Empirical Study on Tree Diagrams and Unit Squares
It is an ongoing debate, what properties of visualizations increase people’s performance when solving Bayesian reasoning tasks. In the discussion of the properties of two visualizations, i.e., the tree diagram and the unit square, we emphasize how both visualizations make relevant subset relations transparent. Actually, the unit square with natural frequencies reveals the subset relation that is essential for the Bayes’ rule in a numerical and geometrical way whereas the tree diagram with natural frequencies does it ...

Preformal proving: examples and reflections
The starting point of our reflections is a classroom situation in grade 12 in which it was to be proved intuitively that non-trivial solutions of the differential equation f' = f have no zeros. We give a working definition of the concept of preformal proving, as well as three examples of preformal proofs. Then we furnish several such proofs of the aforesaid fact, and we analyse these proofs in detail. Finally, we draw some conclusions for mathematics in school and in teacher training.
