Exams: There will be no exams.
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 Pachyderm and the booklet "Honesty
is..." available from the Dean of Students' Office.
Late policy: Assignments are to be handed in at class on the due
date unless otherwise noted. 20% per weekday late
will be deducted unless some other arrangement is
agreed to before the due date.
