The Honor Principle |
---|

- On Exams: No help given or received.

- On Homework: Students are encouraged to work together with one or two classmates and/or to seek help from the instructor. Office hours are on Tuesday, the day before homework is due, and students are strongly encouraged to come by for help. 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 will be regarded as a violation of the Honor Code.

Disabilities and Religious Observance |
---|

- 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.

- Students who miss classes because of religious observance need not inform the instructor in advance. However, to get full credit for late homework due to religious observance, it is necessary to inform the instructor in advance.
