Club Information, 2015-2016
Computer Science Club is used mostly for students who want to further their knowledge of CS and have alreadylearned the basics of programming through the AP level. This usuallyinvolves getting used to competition style programming. If students arestill learning to program and wish to be part of the club they willneed to form a small unit of individuals who wish to work together onlearning more.
Computer Science Club will meet on Tuesdays.
* Practice programming competition problems.
* Help CS students understand problems.
* Learn more advanced topics
- shortest path algorithms
- graph theory
* Other topics that students may want to work on.
- hack-a-thon type things?
- learning new languages?
Iwill be out again on Monday again for family reasons, so I will need tocancel the CS Club. However, I am putting up more practice problemsfor you all to choose from.
Be careful while using Scanner to make sure you are actually getting thecorrect inputs. I recommend you test your inputs with each questionbefore trying to solve the problem.
IE: If the input was in the format
Write a main method which will grab the first number, then loops thecorrect number of times through the next X amound of inputs and usetakes the # in one variable, the word in another variable, and thenprint to the screen: "Number: __ Word: ___" to see if you aregrabbing things correctly. If you are, then try to solve the givenproblem.
Virginia Tech Programming Contest
- Sat, Dec 6, 2014. 9:30am-4pm.
Virginia Tech High School Programming Contest
As part of our outreach, we will be organized a programming contest for high schools in Virginia. Our first contest will be held online. Anyone enrolled in a high school is eligible to participate; however, you will need a teacher (or parent volunteer) functioning as the official team coach. Please see below for details of the rules.
The contest will be in the style of the ACM ICPC contest, with teams of 3 students sharing a computer to solve as many problems as possible within 5 hours. A problem is judged by whether it produces the expected output for a given input within an allotted time limit.
