This activity uses the history of the Rose Bowl football tournament to examine numerical combinations. It asks the student how many different ways a football team can end a game with 11 points, something that has never happened in Rose Bowl history. The activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 math challenges emphasizing math in the real world, also considers possible numerical combinations for playing darts and introduces the concept of a perfect number. It suggests that students make tables to organize information as they examine possibilities. The usefulness of making a table in problem solving and prioritizing is noted. The page features links to a solution hint, the solution, related math questions, and resources for researching other questions related to football. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
