Attendance and Participation
Attendance in the Zoom meetings is strongly encouraged. We will strive to make the class as interactive as possible.
In homework and writing assignments, you can consult any source you wish. But it is essential to cite the sources you used and give appropriate credit where you use another person’s ideas, processes, results, or words. You can find more information at: http://writing.caltech.edu/resources/plagiarism.
Collaboration on homework sets and on the writing assignments is strongly encouraged. Full discussion of the problem and solutions is allowed. This includes talking about the concepts relevant to the problem, as well as the details of the solution. However, you may not consult any prepared solutions for the problems, whether they are this years or from previous years, or from Caltech or external sources. Please cite all sources you used and state clearly with whom you collaborated. For the homework sets, please turn in individual solutions.
