Academic Integrity and Collaboration: You are allowed to collaborate with your classmates to the extent of formulating ideas (in fact, i strongly encourage it). No collaboration on the writing up of homework solutions is allowed. You may not consult written materials other than the course materials in coming up with your solutions. Needless to say, you are expected to maintain the utmost level of academic integrity in the course.
