By “materials,” I mean all materials generated for this class, which include but are not limited to syllabi, quizzes, exams, lab problems, lab web pages, in- ciass materials, review sheets, and additional problem sets. Because these materials are copyrighted, you do not have the right to copy the handouts, unless permission is expressly granted. As commonly defined, plagiarism consists of passing off as one's own the ideas, words, writings, etc., which belong to another. In accordance with this definition, you are committing plagiarism if you copy the work (including lab exercises) of another person and turn it in as your own, even if you should have permission of that person. Plagiarism is one of the worst academic sins, for the plagiarist destroys the trust among colleagues without which research cannot be safely communicated. The Aggie Honor Codes states, “An Aggie does not lie, cheat, or steal or - tolerate those who do.” Upon accepting admission to Texas A&M University, a student immediately assumes a commitment to uphold the Honor Code, to _ accept responsibility for learning, and to follow the philosophy and rules of the Honor System. Students will be required to state their commitment on examinations, research papers, and other academic work. Ignorance of the rules does not exclude any member of the TAMU community from the requirements or the processes of the Honor System. Anyone who violates the University rules on academic honesty will receive an “F” for the course and additional sanctions as described in the University Regulations.

Laboratory exercises are due at the next class period after they are covered in class. You will have one additional class period to turn in the exercise. Exercises turned in after the second class period will receive a score of 1/2 the graded percentage points. Exercises turned in after the third class period will not be graded and a score of zero (0) will be assigned. Exercises turned in with answers obviously copied will receive a grade of zero.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
