Homework should be done individually. You
should solve and write the problems up yourself. Discussing basic
techniques with classmates is OK, but there is a fine line between
"discussing" (which is OK) and "getting the answer" (which is
cheating). To ensure you don't cross the line, its best to never make
written notes while discussing individual homeworks.
Written papers and presentations should also be done individually.
You should be careful to cite all supplementary sources. If you take
words directly from another source, they should be in quotes.
The mid term exam is closed book and closed notes. Doing the
homeworks will help you prepare for the mid term.
Projects will be done individually or in pairs. If you work with a
partner, you will both receive the same grade for the project.
