TA ACSL Intermediate Division Contest 2022-2023
For high school students with no programming experience and for advanced junior high students. Each contest consists of an online 30-minute, 5-question short answer test and an online programming problem to solve in 72 hours. Numerous practice papers are provided. (36 weeks duration)
Talent academy offers courses containing the Intermediate Division 2001-2021 Coding problems that were given by the American Computer Science League (ACSL) during the nine academic years, 2011-12 through 2019-20. The coding questions are solved by writing a computer program and running the program on the ACSL test data. Each question contains sample data to help students test and debug their programs; the test data is designed to be trickier! Each year consists of 4 regular-season contests, each session has a different coding problem set and an end-of-year Finals competition which comprises two or more problem sets. This course is for Intermediate students to challenge themselves with different coding problems.
ACSL arranges international computer science and computer programming competitions for all levels. The intermediate level is slightly easier than the senior division competition. Over 300 individuals along with their teams from around the world like the United States, Canada, Europe, Africa, other countries participate in all the levels respectively, which has been operational for many years now. It is approved by the NASSP. Competitions provided by ACSL and through Talent academy are from 2001 to 2021. The best suited High school students with prior programming experience, particularly those pursuing AP Computer Science, are best suited. As we all know, Advanced Placement Computer Programming is a collection of Advanced Placement science courses and assessments in the United States. The College provides them.
Recursive Functions, Computer Number Systems What is the purpose of this programme? The curriculum covers Pre/Post/Infix Notation, Bit-String Flicking, LISP, Boolean Algebra, Data Structures, Finite State Automation (FSA)/Regular Expressions, Graph Theory, Digital Electronics, Assembly Language, and a variety of other challenging and interesting topics. All of the curriculum topics are extremely useful in terms of future career opportunities. One of the most frequently seen topics throughout the competition is Boolean Algebra. As a result, all previous year's question papers provide a lot of practice and broad exposure to different types of questions. Students can make better use of their time as a result of this. Not only that, but students gain confidence and can perform exceptionally well by practising with previous question papers. Final qualification: The top 65% of teams from the preliminary round are invited to attend the final competition. Requirements: Each team can use the programming language they are most familiar with to solve the contest questions. But NOTE no participant is allowed to use WIFI or other internet sources during the competition. Grading: Individual scores: Individual scores along with individual programming scores are taken together. Team scores: Average of the team written score with the average of the team programming scores are taken along with them. Team awards are based on the level you are participating with the team or individually.
Pre-Requisite? While it is not necessary, to begin with, the fundamentals in order to compete in the ACSL, it is strongly recommended. Students should apply to the Talent Academy's foundational programming / flowchart courses as soon as possible, and then register for the ACSL previous years module paper access modules, which will give them a jumpstart and prepare them for the actual event.
