Unless we specifically state otherwise, we encourage collaboration on "individual" homework, provided
  1. You spend at least 30 minutes on each and every problem alone, before discussing it with others
  2. Cooperation is limited to group discussion and brainstorming. No written or electronic material may be exchanged or leave the brainstorming session,
  3. You write up each and every problem in your own writing, using your own words, and understand the solution fully
  4. You identify each person that you collaborated with at the top of your written homework or in your README file.
Copying someone else's homework is cheating (see below), as is copying the homework from another source (the web, other classes, etc.).


Cheating is a very serious offense. If you are caught cheating, you can expect a failing grade and initiation of a cheating case in the University system. Basically, cheating is an insult to the instructor, to the department and major program, and most importantly, to you. If you feel that you are having a problem with the material, or don't have time to finish an assignment, or have any number of other reasons to cheat, then talk with the instructor. Just don't cheat.

To avoid creating situations where copying can arise, never e-mail or post your solution files. You can post general questions about interpretation and tools but limit your comments to these categories. If in doubt about what might constitute cheating, send the instructor email describing the situation.
