Subject: Probability with dice

Students always ask --- when examining the sample space for rolling two
identical dice, why aren't the doubles repeated?  Example -- (2,3) is
different from (3,2) so they are both listed; but (6,6) is only listed
once. I often say you cannot reverse them because you can't tell (6,6)
from (6,6). Do you have another way of saying this??
