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

Late assignments/projects are not accepted except in the case of medical/family issues. But extensions are easy to get: just ask me in writing or by email at least one week before the due date saying why you need an extension and if you request is reasonable I will approve it.
