Policy on working together

Homework: I encourage you to work together on homework, but don't blindly copy another students work.  You should fully understand all solutions to homework before submitting them.
Labs: I expect labs to be done as a group.  Each group will submit a single report (with all members of the group listed). 
Groups should work independently of one another - you may discuss particular issues, but do not share data or reports.
Projects: Projects may be either individual, or as a group. 
Exams: Exams are to be solely your own work.  The format of exams will vary, but it is never permissible to seek help from another individual.

Statement on Accommodations

"If you believe you need accommodations for a disability or a chronic medical condition, please contact Student Disability Services (Parrish 113W, 123W) via e-mail at studentdisabilityservices@swarthmore.edu to arrange an appointment to discuss your needs. As appropriate, the Office will issue students with documented disabilities or medical conditions a formal Accommodations Letter. Since accommodations require early planning and are not retroactive, please contact Student Disability Services as soon as possible. For details about the accommodations process, visit the Student Disability Services website. You are also welcome to contact me [the faculty member] privately to discuss your academic needs. However, all disability-related accommodations must be arranged, in advance, through Student Disability Services.
