USACO Bronze

USACO Bronze C++ Summer

If you are new to programming start with this class. You will learn the fundamentals of programming with C++. By the end of the course, you will be able to solve easy USACO Bronze problems.

This course requires no programming background. If you tried any other text-based language, such as Python, that is a bonus.

This summer camp class includes both Part 1 and Part 2 curricula. The class starts with setting up the necessary software environment including installation of a compiler and an IDE (Integrated Development Environment). Gradually students will learn the key concepts of programming as well as C++ features that are useful in the USACO contests.

The class lectures are always accompanied by in-class practice problems as well as homework questions.

During the Practice hours of the day students will get individual help to complete the exercises. They will also be able to ask and get clarification about any challenging concepts they encounter during their coding practice.

This class does not require a prior programming experience. Student should be familiar with general Algebra concepts such as variables, equations, and functions. These topics are usually taught at middle school math classes. If the student has math competition background, such as AMC 8 or MathCounts, their results may also be used for eligibility.

 

There is no need for a placement test to register for this class. However, if you are not sure if the student meets the mathematics requirements, please take a look at this course at Khan Academy to decide. A 60% proficiency in Algebra foundations, Solving equations & inequalities, and Functions units is recommended.

If you still need placement help, please do not hesitate to call us for further guidance.

Java is a versatile language that is widely used in software industry due to its platform independence. It is generally believed that a slight speed disadvantage exists at upper levels of USACO contests for those who codes in Java. However, Java is the language taught in the AP Computer Science A course. So, there are pros and cons to both languages.
