CS02a teaches algorithms and data structures using Java in a lecture format. Students complete weekly graded homework assignments and monthly quizzes. Most students find it helpful to attend office hours for support learning these advanced concepts. The material is similar to what may be encountered in lower level USACO competitions. After this class, students can choose to enroll in CS82, our Intro to Machine Learning course.
