You can collaborate with others in the class on homework, but only to the extent needed to understand the problem statement, and to decide on a solution method. However, the work that you turn in must be your own. You can consult outside reference material, but a reference must be adequately cited. Collaboration of any sort is not permitted on exams. Violations of any sorts constitutes an act with profound consequences to your future standing in the profession.
