All homeworks must be solved and written independently, or you will
be penalized for cheating. The USC
Conduct Code prohibits
All USC students are responsible for reading and following the
Conduct Code, which appears on pp. 83-97 of the 1996-1997 SCampus.
In this course we encourage students to study together. This includes
discussing general strategies to be used on individual assignments. However,
all work submitted for the class is to be done individually.
Some examples of what is not allowed by the conduct code: copying all
or part of someone else's work (by hand or by looking at others' files,
either secretly or if shown), and submitting it as your own; giving another
student in the class a copy of your assignment solution; consulting with
another student during an exam. If you have questions about what is allowed,
please discuss it with the instructor.
Students who violate University standards of academic integrity are
subject to disciplinary sanctions, including failure in the course and
suspension from the University. Since dishonesty in any form harms the
individual, other students, and the University, policies on academic integrity
will be strictly enforced. We expect you to familiarize yourself with the
Academic Integrity guidelines found in the current SCampus.
Violations of the Student Conduct Code will be filed with the Office
of Student Conduct, and appropriate
sanctions will be given.
