The Virginia Tech Honor System applies to all graded work in this course. Exams must be solely the student's own work; other persons may not be consulted. On homework assignments the student may consult books and notes, and may discuss homework problems with other people, but each student must write up his/her own assignment separately. Copying a solution from any source (including someone else's assignment) is strictly prohibited. The assignment the student hands in, must be the product of the student's own understanding of the material.
