What are the Chances?

7th grade students have begun the second math unit of the year on probability.  We have played three games so far, and are learning about experimental and theoretical probability.

The Multiplication GameTwo dice are rolled.  If the product is odd, player A gets a point.  If the product is even, player B gets a point.

Is this a fair game?  Will the school make money on this game if they charge $1 to play and award $3 to a winner?
