New York has launched a contest with a cash prize of $50,000 for the best application to teach math to middle-school students. It's part of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's effort to promote science, technology, engineering and math learning, especially among middle-school students. "Students who fall behind in middle-school math are likely to remain behind through high school and less likely to graduate ready for college," Bloomberg said.
