Summary
Do you always feel like the odd man out, that your name is never picked out of a hat, that you never win the prize, or that you are never picked to do a special job for the teacher? How can you use the rules of probability and your views of fair and unfair to create a new way to make classroom “job” selections?

Rationale
To expose the students to being personally involved in fair play and how the rules of probability affect our choices.
