Cheating Policy: You can work together on the homeworks. Individual projects should be your individual work only and, if I have determined that you have cheated, I will give you an F in the course.
Religious Holiday Policy: If you will miss class, especially a class during which there will be an exam or other required work, for a religious holiday, you must inform me during the first two weeks of the semester.
