The Honor Principle |
---|

- On Exams: No help given or received. No calculators are to be used.

- On Homework: Students are encouraged to work together with one or two classmates and/or to seek help from the instructor. Those students who do not know of anyone to work with but would like to collaborate should contact the instructor. Students should state on their homework paper the names of those with whom they have collaborated. What is important in doing homework is the eventual comprehension of the solution of the problem.
When a student writes up a homework problem it is to be his or her own understanding of how to solve the problem. The solutions that a student submits must be written by him or her alone. Any copying of another person's solutions, in whole or in part, will be regarded as a violation of the Honor Code.

Disabilities |

- Students with learning, physical, or psychiatric disabilities enrolled in this course who may need disability-related accommodations are encouraged to meet with the 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.
