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.
