 Spanish term or phrase: cálculo Este trabajo trata de mostrar que estos razonamientos de 'sentido común' se presentan también en el dominio del cálculo de la probabilidad dentro de un marco teórico frecuencial, en estudiantes de primer ciclo de universidad que han recibido un curso formal sobre probabilidad y estadística. Should I use 'calculus' or 'calculation'?? Can both terms be used here??? Thanks in advance!
 Calculation Explanation:I'd go with calculation. Calculus is far too technical for the text. "...calculation of the probability" or "probability calculation". Good luck!
