The Honor Principle |
---|

Collaboration on homework is permitted and encouraged, but it is a violation of the honor code for someone to provide the answers for you. In other words, you should feel free to talk to other students while thinking about a problem, but you should write up your solutions independently. You are also on your honor not to talk to another student about an exam or final until both you and the other student have handed in the exam or final.

Disabilities |
---|

Students with disabilities who will be taking this course and may need disability-related classroom accommodations are encouraged to make an appointment to see the instructor as soon as possible. They should also stop by the Academic Skills Center in Collis 301 to register for support services.
