We will follow the tenets of the Academic Honor Code of Brown University .
Homeworks: You may work on homework problems as a group. However, any work submitted for grading must represent work done by the person who will receive credit for the assignment. It is not acceptable for two students to submit identical copies of a homework problem. It is not acceptable for one student to copy work previously done by another.
Projects: The first design project will be done in teams. For this project, collaboration is permitted on calculations, the design
process, and manufacturing and presenting. However, each student must turn in an independent
report for the first design project. No collaboration of any kind is permitted while
writing this report.
Examinations: No collaboration of any kind is permitted during examinations.
Any violation of these policies or the Academic Honor Code will automatically be referred to the Academic Standing Committee. Penalties for honor code violations may include one or more of the following

Homework handed in after 12:00 noon on the due date will not be graded.
We will excuse homework only for medical reasons or with a Dean's advisement. If you want to be excused from a homework, you must submit a request in writing (email is OK) before the homework is due.
We encourage collaboration on homework assignments: you can learn a lot from working with a group. However, material submitted for grading should represent work done by its author. Any work done in collaboration should be clearly marked as such. See the Academic Honor Code of Brown University for further clarification.
