For this class, we will follow three academic integrity policies: the college’s the department’s and our own class’s.

  1. See the College’s academic integrity policy on the Syllabus page.
  2. Review the Math Department’s academic integrity policy from Spring 2020 here.
  3. Here, we outline our own class-specific Academic Integrity Policy.

Academic honesty class policy

Any work you submit must be your own. All work must be shown and supported.

Unless otherwise indicated, tests and assignments are open book and open notes. You may use

You may not watch videos while you are completing any assessment. You may not use automated problem solvers of any kind.

You may work together or with a CityTech tutor on homework assignments but you may not work with anyone else during a test. You may not consult problem solving websites or apps on assignments or during a test. This includes anything where you plug in the question and it spits out an answer and/or step-by-step solutions. This also includes Google.

If any of your work suggests outside help, you will receive an automatic zero for that assignment. If you want to dispute this grade, you must make an appointment to discuss it with your instructor.  It will be your responsibility to convince your instructor it’s your work and only your work. This will be your one warning.

If you have already been warned and you submit work that suggests outside help, you will receive an automatic failing grade for the course and a report will be filed with the college’s Academic Integrity Committee.

Remark: The word suggests is emphasized above. This is to indicate, for example, that if you make notes using an outside source and then use these notes to complete an assessment, you may be found in violation of the academic integrity policy.
