Individual Homework Assignments

Group Homework Assignments relating to Final Project

- due Monday, 23 April
Groups will be set up for the midterm project shortly after the second
individual homework assignment is due. Different groups will be set up
for the final project shortly after the midterm project is due. We will
try to make the second set of groups as different from the first as possible.
Each person in a group must participate in the group's oral
presentation as well as its written report and group homeworks.
- Groups are expected to meet regularly outside class.
- Group homework assignments will be related to their
project. For each assignment the group must submit
a single written report describing their work.
- For each project the group must submit a written report
describing (among other things) the problem that was
investigated, the models used and the justification for
using them, results from analysis and simulation of the
models, and conclusions drawn from those results. Groups
will also give a brief oral report summarizing their
methods and findings.
In accordance with campus policy, on every assignment submitted each
student should write by hand and sign the University Honor Pedge:
I pledge on my honor that I have not given or received any
unauthorized assistance on this assignment.
The basic principle to keep in mind is to avoid respresenting the
work of others as your own. Individual homework assignments should
be done individually. For group homework assignments and projects,
input from sources outside the group (other than the instructors)
should be cited.
