The Honor Principle

On Quizzes and Exams: No help given or received

On Homework: Collaboration on homework is permitted and encouraged, but obviously it is a violation of the honor code for someone to provide the answers for you. Each student is required to write up their homework individually and list who they collaborated with. It is expected that each student will collaborate with every other member of the class at least once.


Students with learning, physical, or psychiatric disabilities enrolled in this course who may need disability-related classroom accommodations are encouraged to make an appointment to see me before the end of the second week of the term. All discussions will remain confidential, although the Student Accessibility Services office may be consulted to discuss appropriate implementation of any accommodation requested. At such a meeting please provide me with a copy of a completed "Accommodations/Consent" form, which lists the accommodations recommended for the student by Student Accessibility Services ( If you do not have such a form, please visit the Student Accessibility Services office at Collis 301.
