The Super Bowl is coming up! Share a prediction for the score of the big game. Don't just guess, use math to help you get a better idea of what to expect. What are typical scores of a Super Bowl? Do the math!

What is the mean score for the winning team in the Super Bowl? Make sure to show or explain your method

What is the mean score for the losing team in the Super Bowl? Make sure to show or explain your method.

By using the mean of the winning and losing scores, what is the mean Super Bowl final score? By how many points on average does the winning team beat the losing team by?

Find the median score of the winning teams in the Super Bowl. Make sure to show or explain your method.

Find the median score of the losing teams in the Super Bowl. Make sure to show or explain your method.

By using the median of the winning and losing scores, what is the median Super Bowl final score? Using the median, by how many points on does the winning team beat the losing team by?

Now that you have used both the mean and median to explore the typical Super Bowl score, which statistic seems to better represent the data? Why?

Looking at all scores, winning or losing, is there a mode of the data set? If so, what is it? Knowing what you know about football scoring and typical game scores, does it make sense that this score would be the mode?

Which of the twelve Super Bowls had the greatest range? Which Super Bowl was that and what was the range?

Find the range of the scores of the winning Super Bowl teams.

Find the range of the scores of the losing Super Bowl teams.

Find the range of all of the Super Bowl scores from the data set.

Next year we will add the 2017 Super Bowl score to this data set. How many points will the 2017 losing team need to score so that the new 13-year mean of the losing scores is exactly 20 points? How many points will the winning team need to score so that t

If the 2017 Super Bowl score is 3 – 0, will that have a greater effect on the mean Super Bowl score or the median Super Bowl score? Show or explain your reasoning.
