Collaboration Policy

You may discuss the general idea of the questions with anyone you like, but your discussion may not include the specific answers to any of the problems. In other words, you should always be able to answer, by yourself, the question "How did you get this answer?"

Late Work / Missing Tests

Late assignments or missed tests are not accepted except in the case of an official Student Medical Certificate or a written (not email) request submitted at least one week before the due date and approved by the instructor.
