Academic Honesty |
Students are responsible for upholding the rules of
academic honesty as spelled out in the Rensselaer
Handbook. Students are encouraged to collaborate on homework but must
write up solutions independently. Students may not copy or paraphrase
homework solutions obtained from the internet, textbooks, or any other
sources. A
single instance of cheating will result in a failing grade for the course. |
