You may not work together on exams or problem sets. This means you
may not discuss the problems outside of class with anyone but the course
instructor. That includes other members of the class, other students,
other professors, your parents, your siblings, and your dog. I take this
policy seriously, and so does the College. I interpret this to mean that
if someone asks you "How is the problem set going?" your response should be
"I'm sorry, I can't discuss the problem set until after it is turned in."
Here "discussing" means any form of communication about the problems,
including talking, looking at another student's written work, scratch work,
or notes, and looking at old copies of problem sets from previous years. Be
sure to read the cover
sheet to remind you of the terms each time you begin a problem set.
The college takes plagiarism very seriously, and so do I. You should be
sure to read the material on plagiarism and academic honesty that you
received in your freshman orientation package.
