The Honor Principle

On Exams: No help given or received

On Homework: Collaboration is permitted and encouraged -- a discussion of the general idea of the problem(s) with myself, the grader and others is desirable.  However, each student is expected to complete his or her assignments individually and independently. 


Students with disabilities are encouraged to contact me as soon as convenient to discuss appropriate accommodations. Also, they should stop by the Academic Skills Center in Collis Center to register for support services.
