USACO Silver

USACO Silver Part II

Silver level is the first serious step of USACO competition. One must master a variety of algorithms to be able to pass this level. This is why Star League Silver curriculum is twofold: Foundations courses (Part I and Part II) and Problem Solving. Foundations courses teaches the necessary algorithms. Part II is the second course in the series. See the curriculum tab below for covered topics.

This course is an integral part of the Silver training as the Part I. 

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. They also present necessary syntax and language constructs in Both Java and C++ when necessary.

Each class features lecture teaching the topic of the day and several past USACO problems or related exercise questions. After the presentation of a problem instructor demonstrates how to identify the need to use the content of the day's lecture and steers the students towards an acceptable solution through critical questions and hints. At the end the instructor wraps up the discussion and provides a clear solution that demonstrates the usefulness of the day's topic. 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.
