- If you are having trouble with an assignment, please email the professor and/or TAs.
- You may discuss the material with other students, the TAs, and the professor.
- Do not ask to see other students' code or solutions.
- Do not give your code or solutions to another student, even if the other student says they will not copy it.
Please familiarize yourself with the campus academic integrity policy which can be found here.
