Cheating: It is impossible to cheat on homework and quizzes. All homework and all quizzes are open text and you can talk to anyone about them at any time. All quizzes can be worked in groups and I encourage you to take advantage of this policy. If you are struggling, ask a neighbor or ask me. If you are not struggling, be willing to explain your work to those around you. You can learn a lot more by not only being able to do the work yourself but being able to explain it to other people.
All exams are closedbook, closedneighbor, closedinstructor, closedAI, closedcalculator, closednotes, etc... Cheating on an exam will not be tolerated. My policy for anyone caught cheating on any exam, including the final exam, is to award the culprit a "0" for that exam. All cheating offenses will be reported to the Dean of Students who may impose additional sanctions.
Resources: You can come to see me during my office hours or make appointments outside of those hours. You may hire a private tutor. The mathematics department keeps a list of these at: http://www.math.indiana.edu/resources/tutors/
