The Honor Principle
|On Homework:||Collaboration is permitted and encouraged,
but no copying , and to be clear, this means no copying even
from a board or scrap of paper on which a solution was hashed out
collaboratively. What a student turns in as a
homework solution is to be his or her own understanding of how to do
the problems. Students must state what sources they have consulted,
with whom they have collaborated, and from whom they have received
help. 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 Academic Honor Code.
Moreover, if in working with someone they have provided you with an important idea or approach, they should be explicitly given credit in your writeup. Hints given in office hours need not be cited. Note: It is not sufficient to annotate your paper with a phrase like ``I worked with Joe on all the problems.'' Individual ideas are to be credited at each instance; they represent intellectual property.
|On Exams:||Students may not receive
assistance of any kind from any source (living, published,
electronic, etc), except the professor, and may not give assistance
to anyone. Matters of clarification are to be left to the
If you have any questions as to whether some action would be acceptable under the Academic Honor Code, please speak to me, and I will be glad to help clarify things. It is always easier to ask beforehand.
Accessibility Services, Religious Observances,
Students with disabilities who may need disability-related academic adjustments and services for this course are encouraged to see their instructor privately as early in the term as possible. Students requiring disability-related academic adjustments and services must consult the Student Accessibility Services office (205 Collis Student Center, 646-9900, Student.Accessibility.Services@Dartmouth.edu). Once SAS has authorized services, students must show the originally signed SAS Services and Consent Form and/or a letter on SAS letterhead to their instructor. As a first step, if you have questions about whether you qualify to receive academic adjustments and services, you should contact the SAS office. All inquiries and discussions will remain confidential.
The academic environment at Dartmouth is challenging, our terms are intensive, and classes are not the only demanding part of your life. There are a number of resources available to you on campus to support your wellness, including your undergraduate dean (http://www.dartmouth.edu/~upperde), Counseling and Human Development (http://www.dartmouth.edu/~chd/), and the Student Wellness Center (http://www.dartmouth.edu/~healthed/).
Some students may wish to take part in religious observances that occur during this academic term. If you have a religious observance that conflicts with your participation in the course, please meet with your instructor before the end of the second week of the term to discuss appropriate accommodations.
