Academic Integrity:

Academic integrity is at the heart of all higher education philosophies. Adhering to academic integrity policies ensures that you provide yourself with the best education possible. Maintaining academic integrity assures you receive the credit you deserve for your ideas.

You are expected to know and understand Washington State University Academic Integrity Policies. Copying and plagiarism of other sources will result in an automatic F on the assignment. For a second offense, an automatic F in the course will be awarded. University authorities will be notified and the proper procedures will be followed. Possible outcomes resulting from violating these policies include denial of certification into your program and expulsion.

For this course both group (for labs) and individual work (for all other assignments, quizzes, and exams) will be required.  All individual work must be completed alone. Do NOT work with any team members on individual assignments. You may discuss ideas with team members about problems related to individual assignments, but do not discuss implementation details. If help is required please ask the instructor or TA for guidance. We are always more than willing to help!!!
