Collaboration and Academic Misconduct
You are strongly encouraged to collaborate with one another in studying the lecture materials and preparing for quizzes and exams.
You may discuss ideas and approaches to the assignments with others (provided that you acknowledge doing so in your solution), but such discussions should be kept at a high level, and should not involve actual details of the code or of other types of answers. You must complete the actual solutions on your own.
We will assume that you understand the University’s Academic Conduct Code.
Prohibited behaviors include:
copying all or part of someone else’s work, even if you subsequently modify it; this includes cases in which someone else tells you what you should write for your solution
viewing all or part of someone else’s work
showing all or part of your work to another student
consulting solutions from past semesters, or those found online or in books
posting your work where others can view it (e.g., online).
Incidents of academic misconduct will be reported to the Academic Conduct Committee (ACC). The ACC may suspend or expel students found guilty of misconduct. At a minimum, students who engage in misconduct will have their final grade reduced by one letter grade (e.g., from a B to a C).
