- maximum benefit from a homework problem if you work hard on it
alone
before combining your ideas with someone else's,

- no benefit from one person just telling another how to do a problem.

**In particular, you may not simply copy someone else's homework
and
turn it in as your own. **Similarly, copying solutions that you
might find on
the web or from some other source is illegal.

These will all be treated as a violation of UBC's**
Academic
Integrity Code.** We take academic
integrity
very seriously and will follow university procedures in all cases of
suspected
cheating - disciplinary
measures can result in expulsion.

Use of cell phones (in any manner), laptops, iphones, Blackberries
and other electronic devices during class is highly inappropriate, as
it is distracting and disrespectful to fellow students and the
instructor. Chatting with neighbours, even when whispered, is equally
inappropriate. If you have a question then please ask the instructor so
the whole class may benefit too.

Arriving late and leaving early is also discouraged. If it happens then
please enter/leave the room silently and do not disrupt the other
students or instructor. Thank you.

Homework solutions should be written using good English, complete sentences, and adequate detail. Questions should be answered in order, and pages should be fastened with a staple with your name and student number on at least the front page.
