The goal if this class is to prepare students for the upcoming USACO Bronze contests. Upon completion of this course, students should have enough material and preparation to pass into the Silver division. Throughout this course, students will exercise and strengthen their programming knowledge and algorithmic thinking skills. Regular homework with multiple programming assignments will be given, and students are trained to be able to solve problems by themselves from start to finish.
