Except for permitted use of procedures included in the handouts, each program is supposed to be a 100% individual work, in particular, no form of collaboration or help is allowed. They will be made available during the class following the test and during office hours for the remainder of the semester.

GRADUATE STUDENTS will be notified which assignments they are expected to submit and when these assignments are due.

MAKE-UP POLICY. No make-ups will be given. Late programs will not be accepted. However, one quiz may be missed since the lowest quiz score will be dropped anyway.

ACADEMIC HONESTY. No form of plagiarism (copying) will be tolerated. Violations can result in anything from an F in the course to expulsion from the university.
