The Honor Principle

On Exams: No help given or received. No calculators or computing devices are allowed.

On Homework: Collaboration on homework is permitted and encouraged. A discussion of the general idea of the problem(s) with instructors, tutors or fellow students is desirable. However, each student is expected to complete his or her assignments individually and independently. Computing devices are allowed on homework.


Tutorials

We have a graduate TA, Patricia Cahn, who will run tutoring sessions in 007 Kemeny Hall, on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings from 7 to 9pm. Tutorials will begin on Thursday, March 27.

Also note that the Tutor Clearinghouse will organize study groups for this course, and private one-on-one tutors are also sometimes available for Math 8. The tutors and study group leaders are recruited on the basis that they have done well in the subject, and are trained by the Academic Skills Center. If you would like to have a tutor or sign up with a study group, please go to 301 Collis and fill out an application as early in the term as possible.


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 their instructor as soon as possible. Also, they should stop by the Academic Skills Center in Collis Center to register for support services.
