2014年12月到2015 春 USABO, AP biology 以及biology 课程

This year total 7766 students registered to the USABO contest in the U.S. 6194 took the test. The highest score is 43.75 (out of 50), and the mean is 21.18. There were a total 624 semifinalists and 184 were from California. The cutoff is 28.5. Students from SpringLight Education Institute have had great achievements. Half of them qualified for the semi-final exam and one of them qualified for the finals. One of our students has made the USABO Team, comprised of the top 20 students of the nation.

The USABO questions require the same knowledge as AP biology.

Many of our students have also received top scores of 5 on the AP biology exam and 800 on the SAT II Biology test.

The next USABO Open exam will be from Feb. 3rd to Feb. 13th, 2015

This 12 intensive day USABO boot camp will teach the student the most effective ways to succeed in the Biology Olympiad Exam. Each day they will take real USABO tests. Each answer will be thoroughly explained as to why it’s correct, why it isn’t correct, and what question would be asked to make the correct answers correct. We will also go in depth to topics that are commonly missed, and those that demand a detailed understanding of the topic. It’s for the students who have finished AP biology.

After the 12 days of AP biology boot camp, the students can take our USABO open exam preparation class in January, then challenge the USABO open exam in February. This class is for the students who have finished biology or are taking a biology class at school.

We can arrange a special sechdule for students who are currently ready to prepare for the semifinal exam.

USACO Camp in the winter奥林匹克计算机竞赛冬令营

USACO (USA computer Olympiad) Camp in the winter

There are only four contests instead of the usual six 2014-2015 school year.

Dec 12-15: First Contest
Jan 16-19: Second Contest
Feb 20-23: Third Contest
April 3-6: US Open
May 21-30: Training Camp
July 26-August 2: IOI’15 in Almaty, Kazakhstan

Jimmy will help you prepare for the contest

From August 2013 to August 2014, Jimmy’s USACO class has helped many students reach the Gold, Silver and Bronze levels of USACO. The parents and students say that Jimmy is the best USACO teacher. He is responsible, reliable, knowledgeable and good at teaching.


USACO Bronze: 2-6pm (2 hours for lecture then 2 hours for practice session)
USACO Silver:  4-8pm (2 hours for practice session then 2 hours for lecture)


December 21, 2014 to January 3, 2015 with a total 12 classes.
[No class on Christmas Day (12/25/2014) and New Year’s Day (1/1/2015)]
Note: An optional practice session on January 3, 2015 at 8-10pm for practice questions from the last day or for any last questions.
Location: 1340 S De Anza Blvd, Suite 204, San Jose, CA 95129
Contact: 408-366-2204; spring.light.edu@gmail.com
Class and practice session____$850
Practice session only ________$350

Registration: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1qW_1_6O8Vvti9LFZznVbKF1kqUO2lMGDO1pU1F2a8fk/viewform

Bronze requirements: Fluency in JAVA or C++. You should be very familiar with conditional statements (if/else), loops (for/while), arrays, and strings. Knowledge in classes, object-oriented programming, comparators, iterators, etc. is preferred.

Silver requirements: Ability to consistently solve Bronze problems. The Silver material assumes knowledge of Bronze class material, such as knowing how to do BFS, DFS, and sorting, as well as know how to use standard data structures like arraylists, linked lists, stacks, queues, deques, heaps (priority queues), and binary search trees (TreeMap/map, TreeSet/set).

The purpose of the practice session (4-6 pm), shared between Bronze and Silver, is to provide a time when students from either classes can ask questions and receive help while coding. If you have previously taken Jimmy’s class and want extra time to practice and ask questions, it’s possible to sign up for just the practice session.

For Bronze students, the practice session is right after the lecture and will allow students to work on the exercises from that day and optional problems if they have finished. For Silver, the corresponding practice session is before the next day’s lecture. The Silver problems are more challenging, so this will allow students time to think about and work on problems at home before asking for help the next day.

For Silver students, the first practice session will be before the first lecture, so it will be a practice test consisting of Bronze problems to see what level you are at. There will also be an optional extra practice session on the last day, 8-10 pm, so Silver students can practice and ask questions for exercises from the last class and so all students can ask any last questions before the class ends.

Please try to attend all classes as there will be no make-ups. If you must miss a class, send me an email and I’ll send you the lecture notes for that day. Read over the lecture notes and try to do the exercises. If you have questions, you can ask for help at the next practice session.

The practice sessions are intended to allow you to have time to work on the problems while getting help. If you have time at home, you should still work on the problems at home. If you want to do well on USACO, you should practice a lot of problems.

science bowl 获奖感想

写给所有这次在初中高中参加Science Bowl, Science Omlypiad 的同学,指导教练老师还有家长们,你们真的辛苦了。不论得奖或是没有得奖。每个组都超过二十个队,而且全是优秀的学校。儿子参加初中的比赛,参赛3个events, 得到两个金牌。他们有两队(4人和15人)分别会在4月和5月代表加州去DC和Wisconsin-Medison参加全国比赛。虽然初中的任何成绩不纪录,但学校不会忘记,同学不会忘记,我们妈妈爸爸更不会忘记。加油!我会让儿子好好写一个参赛经历,真的是又紧张又激烈。下周六还有一个Debate的加州出现权比赛,先预祝他成功。我是一个低调的人,在这里显摆一下了,不好意思。
