Disabilities and Religious Observances

Students with disabilities enrolled in this course and who may need disability-related classroom accommodations are encouraged to make an appointment to see your instructor before the end of the second week of the term. All discussions will remain confidential, although the Student Accessibility Services office may be consulted to discuss appropriate implementation of any accommodation requested.

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 your instructor before the end of the second week of the term to discuss appropriate accommodations.

The Honor Principle

On Exams and Quizzes: All exams and quizzes will be closed book. You cannot give or receive help while taking either an exam or a quiz. In addition, No calculators or computers are allowed during an exam.

On Homework: You are welcome to consult your classmates, your instructors, and your tutors on homework. But please do not copy. We encourage you to work on homework in groups, but please write each problem's solution in your own words. Also, if you do work in groups on a particular problem, please write the names of your group members next to the problem number. Calculators and computing devices are allowed on homework, but remember that you will not be able to use them on your exams and quizzes.
