Academic Ethics: All work is subject to the Indiana University Code of Student Ethics.

Learning requires a partnership between the instructor, authors, researchers and students; therefore students are encouraged to use any and all resources available to solve homework problems and complete programming assignments. However, students must:

  1. clearly cite any contributing source; a text, another student, the Internet, etc.
  2. create their own solutions

For example, students may work in groups to solve homework problems provided each student creates their own (not copies) solutions  and clearly lists all group members or other sources such as authors of texts or on the Internet. Likewise, software that performs assigned functionality may not be directly used but the source code may be consulted provided it is subsequently cited. Changing the spelling of algorithm identifiers does not constitute creating an original solution. It is absolutely essential to note that failure to cite any contributing source will be considered cheating regardless of the reason for the omission. Likewise, verbatim duplication of any source, whether from another student, a text, etc. will always be considered plagiarism.

Violation of any aspect of this policy will result in a failing grade for the course.
