All complaints about homework grades must be submitted in writing within two weeks of the time when the graded solutions are available, but no later than on the business day before the exam date. By examining your solution in more detail, the grade can be increased or decreased. Before submitting a claim, carefully read the relevant materials.

Academic Integrity

Copying homework assignments, projects and cheating on exams is a serious violation of academic integrity.

Cheating on homework assignments and projects include copying somebody else's work (i.e. classmate, internet, literature) and handing the work under your name, allowing somebody else to copy your work, or excessive collaboration. Cheating on exam includes use of unauthorized devices, as well as communication with others during the exam.

The standard penalty for cheating on homework assignment is a grade of -100%. Penalty for cheating on exam is Fx with no option of retaking the exam. Serious infraction will be reported to the faculty disciplinary committee.

With respect to homeworks, we encourage discussion between students and in groups. However, the solution you hand in must be your own and described in your own words. To avoid problems, do not keep any notes from such discussions and wait for several hours after the discussion before writing up your own solution.
