New York Long Wing Education-Computer Competition Camp
The training class is divided into 2 sessions, each with 10 days. The first course content is USACO Bronze level (difficulty level: Bronze level test requires basic programming knowledge), and the first course content is USACO silver level (difficulty level: basic questions are required Solving ability and simple algorithms, such as: greedy algorithm, recursive search, etc., also need to understand the basic data structure).
USACO, the United States Computer Olympiad, is a competition for all high school informatics contestants around the world. Its difficulty ranges from easy to difficult: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
Computer teacher Michael Chen, USACO Platinum level player, Yale University computer science student, has rich competition experience and teaching experience.
Class hours: 12 lessons
Number of people: 4-8 people per class
Suitable for the crowd: the first phase is suitable for more than half a year of Java programming experience, the second phase is suitable for more than one year of Java programming experience
Teaching platform: Zoom
The main content of this course is Java, which is currently the most extensive network programming language. It has the characteristics of simple, wide object-oriented and strong stability. The Java environment can be used to develop application software that can run on any computing platform. The systems of Internet companies, governments, and large multinational corporations are basically developed using Java, and the market prospect is good.
Experienced Java engineers can choose architects, front-end development, big data processing, games, mobile development, or transfer to other languages ​​in career planning.
This course uses metaphors and analogies to assist in understanding abstract concepts, easily mastering the basic syntax of Java, and no longer regards programming languages ​​as "sky books."
Through hands-on practice to master each knowledge point more deeply, integrate the learned knowledge, and complete the transition from learning a programming language to using a programming language.

【Computer Science】USACO-Bronze——Instructor: Michael Chen

  • 7/27——8/7


  • Overview 

    The goal if this class is to prepare students for the upcoming USACO Silver contests. Upon completion of this course, students should have enough material and preparation to pass into the Gold division. Throughout this course, students will learn and apply several algorithms that are required to know for the Silver division (Greedy, Graph theory, data structures). 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. 

    Bio for the lecturer 

    Michael Chen is entering his sophomore year at Yale University, studying computer science. He has had multiple competitive programming experiences during high school. Besides qualifying for the USACO Platinum division, Michael has also won first at the Stanford Programming Contest the ACSL International All Star Contest.  His other interests include machine learning and web development.  


    Typing speed: 25 wpm minimum; 30 wpm recommended. 

    Is already qualified for the USACO Silver division, or demonstrates ability to complete any past USACO Bronze contest without assistance. 

    Prior experience with recursion is strongly recommended to keep up with the pace of the course 

    Laptop requirement  

    Any laptop or computer with reliable access to the Internet and at least 8 GB of RAM is sufficient for this course. All operating systems supported.
