General Comments

         Students are encouraged to discuss class material and homework in order to better understand concepts.  However, all the homework you submit must be of your own. Direct copying of a solution (from a friend or a book) will be considered as plagiarism and a violation of the University Honor Code.

         Homework assignments are to be turned at the beginning of the class on the due date. Late submission (Homework and Project) will not be accepted.

         The exams (midterm and final) are closed book with one page (8.5 x 11) of notes allowed. Make up exams may be given only under exceptional circumstances and with prior approval of the instructor.

         All students are responsible for announcements made in lecture, on the student access website, or via the class email list.

         It is the responsibility of students with certified disabilities to provide the instructor with appropriate documentation from the Dean of Students Office (see http://www.unt.edu/oda).
