The Honor Principle

On Exams: No help given or received

On Homework: Collaboration on homework is permitted and encouraged, but obviously it is a violation of the honor code for someone to provide the answers for you. Even if you work together to solve problems, you must each write up your solutions on your own.


We have two graduate TAs who will run tutoring sessions in 006 Kemeny Hall, on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings from 7 to 9pm. Tutorials will begin on Sunday, January 7.

Also note that the Tutor Clearinghouse will organize study groups for this course, and private one-on-one tutors are also sometimes available for Math 13. The tutors and study group leaders are recruited on the basis that they have done well in the subject, and are trained by the Academic Skills Center. If you would like to have a tutor or sign up with a study group, please go to 301 Collis and fill out an application as early in the term as possible.


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.
