Honor statement applied to EF 230

You CAN and are encouraged to work together and to help each other on homework and projects. When you help another student, DO NOT show them your code that works. Instead, describe the approach you used, make suggestions on appropriate commands, and/or help identify errors, but do not share code.

You MUST NOT share code. This includes segments of code and complete programs. Every student must independently write their own code. Programs will be similar in nature because they are solving the same problem. However, they should not be virtually identical. You can do things using different commands, different sequences of commands, use different variable names, and create uniquely personalized comments.

It is OK and you are encouraged to use other sources (web site, help file, etc) as examples. However, you should NOT copy/paste from these examples.

DOCUMENT! Use comments to explain how things work. When it doubt, add extra comments. If you use a novel idea from another source, include a reference to it in your programs comments.

Programs will be checked for 'uniqueness' against all other programs from this and previous semesters. Any violations in this rule will be considered a violation of the University's honor code and will be dealt with accordingly.
