The paper presents a proposal of a teaching practice aimed at higher secondary school students, which intends to enhance discussion on the meaning and interpretation of probability, a topic which is often neglected in Italian schools. The authors are convinced that turning the traditional teaching method upside down - that is, proceeding directly to a problem solving approach with the aid of computers as programming tools - better develops in the students the ability to analyse and address uncertain situations correctly, and consolidates a probabilistic mentality. The chosen method was a phenomenon-inductive approach with the help of simulations, which encouraged the formulation of hypotheses and speculation concerning random phenomena.
