Any incidence of cheating in this class will be severely dealt with. This applies to homework assignments, programming assignments, quizzes and tests. The minimum penalty for cheating will be that the student will not obtain any credit for that particular assignment. (This means that if in a test and/or assignment a student is found have cheated, he/she will obtain zero in that test and/or assignment.) For the homework and the programming assignments students may discuss the problems with others, but one is expected to turn in the results of one's own effort (not the results of a friend's efforts). One tends to get very suspicious if two identically wrong results show up in the homework assignment and/or tests. The names of the offenders will be maintained in the departmental files. The repeat offenders may be debarred from the University.
