Math 28 - Winter 2013
Students are encouraged to work together to do homework problems. What is important is a
student's eventual understanding of homework problems, and not how that is achieved.
The honor principle on homework:
What a student turns in as a homework
solution is to be his or her own understanding of how to do the problem. Students must state
what sources they have consulted, with whom they have collaborated, and from whom they have
received help. It is a violation of the honor code to copy solutions from problems posted on the web
or book or any other source. The solutions you submit must be written by you alone. Any copying (electronic or
otherwise) of another person's solutions, in whole or in part, is a violation of the Honor Code.
For example, it is a breach of the honor code to read
the solutions of someone else in order to write
The honor principle on exams:
Students may not give or receive assistance of
any kind on an exam from any person except for the professor or someone explicitly designated
by the professor to answer questions about the exam.
If you have any questions as to whether some action would be acceptable under the Academic Honor
Code, please speak to me I will be glad to help clarify things. It is always easier to ask
beforehand than to have trouble later!
