When solving your homework problems and
working on your project, you may discuss **HIGH-LEVEL** approaches to the
homework problems with your classmates, HOWEVER, you are to work out all details
of any solutions discussed and write up the solution completely on your own. In
particular, when working with a student on an assigned homework problem you
should do so verbally -- Nothing should be written. This is aimed at keeping
your discussion at a high level so everyone can work out the details on their
own. Please follow the spirit of this rather than working to finds ways to share
details verbally. **Also you must clearly acknowledge anyone (except the
instructor) with whom you discussed any problem and say briefly what you
discussed.**

*COPYING MATERIAL FROM WEB SITES,
BOOKS, OR OTHER SOURCES IS CONSIDERED EQUIVALENT TO COPYING FROM ANOTHER
STUDENT. INFORMATION FROM THESE SOURCES MAY BE USED IF THE SOURCES ARE
ACKNOWLEDGED AND YOU HAVE WRITTEN DOWN THE IDEAS ON YOUR OWN.*

**Violations of any of the above rules
will be dealt with harshly! The homework problems and projects are designed to
help you learn the material being taught. Being told the solution and
understanding it is VERY different from working through the process of actually
finding a solution. If you do not take an active role in the process of solving
the homework problems and project, then you won't get much out of it.**
