9 List all possible outcomes of an experiment involving a single event.
  The pictures below show a view of Camelia's die from different directions. What numbers can you roll with her die? Which number are you likely to roll most often?
  Materials: blank six-sided die.

  • Try this activity with a partner.
  • Have your partner put a different number, color, word, or shape on each side of the die.
  • Now, have your partner start repeatedly rolling the die, telling you what is rolled each time.
  • Continue until you can identify what is on each side of the die.
  • Use a four, six or eight-sided die, but donŐt tell your partner which. Let him/her guess not only what is on each side of the die, but how many faces.
  • Pick your objects or shapes according to a theme. Your partner should be able to guess the theme as well as the symbol on each face.
  Materials: regular six-sided die.

  • Take turns rolling a regular six-sided die.
  • First player to have rolled all six sides wins.
  • Create different dice, with two or more faces alike. How does this affect the outcome of the game? The length of the game?
  • If you roll a number needed by your opponent (one which you already have), she or he gets to use it.
  • Use an eight sided die instead of the six-sided die. How does this affect the length of the game?
  • Change the rules so that you have to roll the six sides of the die in order.
