Attendance and absences: Your attendance at each scheduled class meeting and discussion section is expected. You are responsible for material covered in class and announcements made during class; these may include changes in the syllabus.
You may collaborate with other students on the homework; however, each individual student is responsible for turning in your own homework in your own words. Copying is not collaboration and will be prosecuted under scholastic dishonesty. Any significant collaboration should be acknowledged.
