USACO Bronze

Problem Solving Mini Camp

If you are taking Bronze Problem Solving or already have taken it, this course will provide extra practice before the Spring contests. It is a chronological study of past USACO Bronze OPEN contest questions of the last six years.

The class is language agnostic. Instructors use pseudo language when necessary to explain programming concepts. However, they are able to help both Java and C++ users when they need help.

This course requires that students are able to solve at least one question (preferably close to one and a half) at a recent Bronze contest.

Each class features several past USACO problems. After the presentation of a problem instructor steer the students towards an acceptable solution through critical questions and hints. At the end the instructor wraps up the discussion and provides a cohesive solution and ways to optimize it. Students are expected to implement their solution or the presented solution during the Practice time.

During the Practice hours of the day students will get individual help, such as for debugging, to implement the solutions. They will also be able to ask and get clarification about any challenging concepts they encounter during their coding practice.

Student must know the Star League Bronze Foundations curriculum that is taught through Bronze Part I and II courses. It is expected that the student is able to solve at least one problem at a recent Bronze contest. If you have some programming background but can not solve any problem, it is recommended to start with Bronze Part II. If you are new to programming start from Bronze Part I.

You can either take a published contest at the official USACO website ( or take our Placement test here. First you will need to create an account for the student for the respective site. Please contact us if you encounter any difficulty.
