## AY 123 Homework Policy March 2003

Roger Blandford and Judy Cohen
Homework policy:

Because solving problems is the best way to
understand the material, you should attempt to
solve problems first on your own. You may consult
books and published papers, but not old homework solutions
from this class. After that,
discussion of the problems with other students in this class
to improve your understanding of the underlying
physics is permitted and encouraged, but not solutions
to the problems themselves.

In addition, because looking at your solutions is
one way for us to know how well you've learned the
material, you should work out your own solutions
without using or referring to the solutions of others.

Thus on problem sets, the formal policy for this class
(AY 123) is that the students can freely discuss the problems,
but need to work out solutions on their own and not
refer to others' solutions.
