A fair die has equal probability for each side. Or The probability of an outcome is the number of specific outcomes out of the total number of all possible outcomes of one event. 
A die has six sides. The numbers on a die are 1  6. Each number appears only once. Each side has an equal chance of being rolled. (The die is fair.) Each side same size... 
I can cause a certain number to be rolled (blowing, throw hard, throw a certain way...). It is magic. 
Diagnostic What is the probability to roll a 4 on a 6 sided die? Summative Generative Predict the probabilities of a die other than six  sided. Predict the probabilities for an equally partitioned spinner. Probabilities of equal numbers of socks of different colors in a drawer. 
Activity Objective Students predict what will happen if they roll one die 36 times, roll one die 36 times, record data, organize data onto a graph, analyze the data, and explain the pattern they found and predict what would happen with different sided die.
