The USACO supports pre-college computing around the world through computer programming competitions and training materials. The USACO holds six Internet Contests during the academic year, and in the late Spring conducts the US Open, a proctored exam.

Marilyn Burns
Marilyn Burns discusses creative and effective ways to use manipulatives to teach math.

She discusses the seven "musts" for using manipulatives, how to introduce a Geoboard, pattern block activities, and more.

"What do you do all day?" "Do you get to sleep in every day?" "Do you ever see anybody besides your family?" "Do you do your schoolwork in your pajamas?" "Do you even do schoolwork when you don't feel like it?" These are some of the questions I have been asked several times. So, to answer some of these, and others, I kept a journal of one day for me and my five siblings, which will hopefully give readers a better idea of what it is like to be a homeschooling high school student.
