**Policy on collaboration:** On homework exercises collaboration
is allowed at the level of discussing ideas, but credit must be given to the
other parties whether you gave or received help. A simple statement on the
homework sheet, such as "I helped Don Knuth on problem 1." or "Alan
Turing helped me with part c of problem 2." or "Grace Murray Hopper
and I discussed the design of COBOL." will suffice. Copying or working
out the details of assignments collaboratively is not allowed. Failure to
follow these guidelines may result in severe disciplinary action for all parties
involved. See the booklet "Academic
Integrity" available from the Dean of Students' Office.

**Late policy:** Assignments are to be handed in
as specified on the assignment page. 20% per weekday late will be deducted unless
some other arrangement is agreed to before the due date.
