Description: Students combine computer game fun and serious mathematics in a
face-off of the "Green Globs Contest." After learning about coordinate graphs
and equations in math class, students put their knowledge to work by going after
the highest score on a posted Green Globs array. Highest scores will be posted
on the contest website. You can use the current posting of arrays
( http://DMCpress.org/gg )  to prepare for the contest. The official contest
challenges will be posted on 6/2/08.

Software needs: Green Globs and Graphing Equations (PC & Mac OS 10.5 versions)
available from http://www.greenglobs.net. However, you can compete without the
