My resolution to this dilemma is to have the homework graded primarily on effort. Essentially, half of your grade comes from this alone, with the remaining half from your performance. Thus, realistically if you put forth a solid effort on the homework your grade will be relatively good. My balance in this leniency is provided by the weekly quizzes, which come directly from the homework and are graded as a exam.

- Working together by solving problems is an effective way to learn. However, copying solutions from one another or out of the solutions manual is not acceptable and may constitute academic dishonesty. Copying solutions from one another or from the solutions manual may result in a one letter grade reduction for the course.
- Any form of plagiarism is unacceptable and may result in disciplinary action.
- All students are expected to behave in a respectful and appropriate manner in class. Students acting in a manner that is disruptive or impedes learning may be asked to leave the class. Students that are asked to leave will be required to meet with the instructor and may be referred to Student Judicial Affairs for review and possible disciplinary action.
- The use of cell phones, pagers and other electronic devices is prohibited during class. Cell phones need to be placed into â€œsilent / vibrate modeâ€ during class or turned off. Laptops are permitted for the purpose of taking notes, software training and performing in-class assignments only and are not to be used for e-mail, instant messaging or other non-class activities.
- Examinations are conducted as means to assess student learning and understanding of the course material. During examinations, students are expected to have no communication with others in or outside of class. Such communication or the copying of another studentâ€™s exam solutions will result in a grade of F for the examination and an F for the final course grade.
