Honor Code:

You are expected to observe all aspects of  the College’s Academic Honor Principle (https://www.dartmouth.edu/~uja/honor/) . Dartmouth College policy requires that any apparent violation of the Honor Code be reported to the Committee on Standards.

The work you hand in should be your own. Sources must be clearly and properly identified - books, internet sites, professors, students and other sources must be acknowledged. If you have any questions about proper citation, please blitz your TA or Professor Robbie.

If you are ever in doubt of any aspect of how the honor code pertains to this course, please ask one of the TA's. It is always safer to err on the side of caution. Below are the major parts of this course for which you will receive a grade, and in each case it is explained how the honor code applies.

1. Exams: Exams are closed book and closed notes. There will be no collaboration with other students during exams. This, of course, prohibits looking at another student's paper, or asking another student any questions related to the test. There will always be a TA present during tests to answer any questions that you might have. In terms of studying for exams, group sessions with friends to review the material from the course are encouraged. You may go over another student's notes or even photocopy them to study from. In addition to studying with other students, do not hesitate to contact a TA if you have a question at any time.

2. Papers: From the stages of choosing a topic, through doing research, you may work with other students. However, the actual writing of the paper must be done individually. You may have other students proofread your work and give you their opinions. The only thing they cannot do is write any section of your paper for you.

All sources of material from texts, journals, or websites must be cited. Any sections used directly must be in quotations. Students are responsible for the information concerning plagiarism found in Sources: Their Use and Acknowledgement available at the Deanís Office and at http://www.dartmouth.edu/~sources/
