===Learning objectives===
 +
#Understand that events occur with different frequencies
 +
#Different events have different likelihoods (likely, unlikely, equally likely, not equally likely)
 +
#Understand the idea of sample space and universe of events

===Notes for teachers===
''These are short notes that the teacher wants to share about the concept, any locally relevant information, specific instructions on what kind of methodology used and common misconceptions/mistakes.''

#To understand likelihood of events happening
 +
#The objective here is not numerical computation but to understand events, likelihoods and vocabulary of description.  The activity can be done in groups/ pairs. Not a whole class activity.
 +
#Compare the results across groups.
 +
#To develop an understanding of what chance means?
