Manipulative

Materials: blank sixsided dice (or blank spinner mats, or probability tops).
 Using a blank die, construct a new die for each statement below:
 it is certain that you will roll a 5.
 it is uncertain whether you will roll a 2 or a 4.
 it is possible to roll any even number less than 11.
 it is impossible to roll a number greater than 3, but certain that you will roll a 4.
 it is uncertain whether you will roll a 2, 4 or 6, but it is more likely to roll a 6 than a 4, and more
likely to roll a 4 than a 2.
 it is uncertain just what number you will roll.
 Take each of these dice, one at a time, and construct a simple experiment to check your answer.
 Write two other sentences like the ones above and give them to a friend to construct the appropriate die.
