This accelerated course includes variable types, loops, control statements, functions, and one- and two-dimensional arrays, object-oriented programming, memory manipulation, and dynamic arrays. This course is designed to prepare students for the American Computer Science League (ACSL), the USA Computing Olympiad (USACO) and the Canadian Computing Competition (CCC). Pre-requisites: a solid background in coding (completion of Java Level 2 or AP Computer Science A).
This course is designed to build the basics of a complicated mathematical field. It is designed to be a complete introduction to the fundamental concepts of number theory for students in grades 7-10.
The class covers topics such as primes and composites; multiples, divisors, and divisibility; prime factorization and its uses; modular arithmetic and more.
Students in grades 6-10 will build a solid understanding of more advanced geometry concepts in this course. It is designed to expand on the standard high school geometry curriculum and to challenge students with new concepts and problems.
Topics include congruent and similar triangles, circles, 3D geometry, and introductory trigonometry.
To build on the concepts from the Introduction level course, students will build on their Counting and Probability knowledge.
A thorough introduction for students in grades 7-10 to counting and probability topics such as permutations, combinations, Pascal's triangle, geometric probability, basic combinatorial identities, the Binomial Theorem, Pigeonhole Principle Conditional, Probability Graph Theory and more.
