##### Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

##### What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

##### Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

##### What are tags?

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.

### ACTIVITY: To list possible outcomes to simple experiments [LO 5.9]

Determine the probability in the following cases:

1. Two dice are rolled simultaneously. What is the probability of one die landing on 1?

## Assessment

Learning Outcome 5:The learner will be able to collect, summarise, display and critically analyse data in order to draw conclusions and make predictions, and to interpret and determine chance variation.

Assessment Standard 5.9: We know this when the learner lists possible outcomes for simple experiments (including tossing a coin, rolling a die, and spinning a spinner);
