Academic Dishonesty Policy
Back to top
"It is strongly
recommended that you keep up with the reading and
read the relevant chapter before attending lecture. This way,
you will benefit most from the added intuition and emphasis given in
lecture. After lecture, you are strongly encouraged to try your hand at
every problem at the end of the chapter and come to office hours if you
can not solve any of them. Learning probability well is a matter of
practice  doing the assigned homeworks alone will not guarantee that
you will learn the material well enough to perform in an exam situation.
Finally, you are encouraged to form study groups and to try and stump
each other with questions of your own devising."

 "Doing homeworks and studying the
solutions are an essential part of
learning this material. To promote this, we have a special homework
policy:
Students are expected to turn in copies of their
assignments in lecture
when due. Before the next lecture, they are expected to grade their
own
homeworks (using the originals with them) on the basis of the posted
solutions. The detailed grades (0,1,2 points per distinct part of
every
problem) should be emailed to the GSI. These grades will be the basis
of
your HW grade for the course and will be randomly compared against the
reader grades. If you don't submit grades to your homework, you
are
asking to get a zero on the assignment."
