General course policies
Except for clearly labeled group submissions, all homeworks and projects in a course are to be done by you and you alone. Violation will result in an immediate F grade and possible initiation of the formal procedures of the University. We use automated techniques and manual checks to correlate submissions.
At the same time, we encourage students to help each other learn the course material. As in most courses, there is a boundary separating these two situations. You are allowed to consult with other students in the current class to help you understand the material or homework/project requirements (i.e., the problem definition). However, you may not collaborate in any way when constructing your solution: the solution to an individual homework/project must be prepared by you working alone. In particular, you are not allowed to collaboratively work out a detailed solution to the extent that your submissions are identifiably similar.
If you have any questions as to what constitutes unacceptable collaboration, please talk to the instructor right away. You are expected to exercise reasonable precautions in protecting your own work.
Please refer to the Academic Honesty Policy and Procedures for additional information.
