As well as developing knowledge, the students are also developing an understanding of when it is appropriate to use particular strategies. When talking about a certain animal or a culture, etc., students may understand it better if they can actually see it. Teaching with Data Simulations allows students to visualize probability distributions, which in turn can make the processes associated with probability more concrete. There was virtually no difference in how well the children did basic computation, but those in the alternative classrooms demonstrated significantly higher levels of mathematical reasoning.[44] All the students then spent the next year in conventional classrooms and were tested again.
