The Honor Principle

On Exams: No help given or received.

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.


There is no teaching assistant fort Math 20. Tutors may be available for Math 20 through the Tutor Clearinghouse. If you would like to have a tutor, please go to 301 Collis and fill out an application as early in the term as possible. There may be a waiting list.


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.
