They will assist you and your peers in truly grasping the course material, whilst still being able to help each other out. Here we go: 1. It is OK to discuss the general approach to solving a problem. 2. It is OK to work with others to come up with the general steps for a solution 3. It is OK to give/receive hints when you or someone else is stuck. 4. It is not OK to receive the details of a solution, these you should work out yourself. 5. It is not OK to simply copy someone else’s solution / let your solution be copied. 6. It is not OK to plug your numbers in someone else’s formula to get an answer. 7. It is not not OK to consult a step-‐by-‐ step solution to a problem, when the deadline has not passed yet. 8. It is not OK to share/receive the answers to an assignment before its deadline. 9. IT is OK to let someone help you one step further in a solution, provided that you have given it a wholehearted attempt and are stuck for some time. And most important! 10. After you have collaborated with others to find a solution, you should be able to solve a similar problem by yourself the next time!
