Honors code Collaboration
and discussion of general ideas related
to homework problems are allowed and encouraged. However you
must
write down all
solutions by yourself in your own words; copying is obviously a
violation of the honor code. If you work in group, the names of
collaborators must be written on the solution sheet.
As for exams, no
collaboration is permitted.
Students with disabilities Students
with disabilities
who will be taking this course and may need disability related
classroom accommodations are encouraged to make an appointment to see
their instructor as soon as possible. Also, they should stop by the Academic Skills
Center in Collis Center to
register for
support services.
Religious
observance
Some
students may wish to take
part in religious observances that occur during this academic term. If
you have a religious observance that conflicts with your participation
in the course, please meet with me before the end of the second week of
the term to discuss appropriate accommodations.
