Grading and Exams:
Homework problems will be assigned regularly.
You are encouraged to discuss solutions with your friends but you must write
your homework yourself.
It is not acceptable to borrow your friend's written homework or for that matter
to lend your written version.
Writing should be private.
However until the writing stage you may and in fact you should discuss solutions with
your friends, and also with me.
Some homework problems will appear in midterm and final exams
in disguised forms.
