Abstract

We argue that the concept of a variable as classically understood in mathematics and physics is didactically and scientifically inadequate for the needs of probability and statistics and we propose an alternative concept. A revision should have political implications for the relation between mathematical and statistical teaching. © 2005 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.
