Are you ready?

What outcomes can happen when you roll a die? Can you make a list? Which outcomes are odd? Which outcomes are even?

A six-sided die is rolled.

  1. List all the possible outcomes from rolling the die:

    $\editable{}$, $2$2, $\editable{}$, $\editable{}$, $5$5, $6$6

  2. What is the chance that a $6$6 is rolled?

    Likely

    A

    Unlikely

    B

    Likely

    A

    Unlikely

    B
