Depending on the grade breakdown, the instructor may lower the minimum percentage needed for some of these grades. Do not depend on this happening!
In the "real world," the more collaboration, the better. Thus, you are encouraged to collaborate with your classmates and other acquaintances in order to help you produce the best work possible on your assignments. But since this is still an academic setting, your final "hand-in" work must be your own.
If somebody else does the actual work handed in or presented, that will be viewed as an example of cheating, not collaboration. In addition, the midterm and final exam will be traditional academic exams, in which any collaboration will be viewed as cheating.
Any student involved in an incident of cheating, even if serving only to provide work to another student, will be given a grade of "0" for that assignment or exam. No excuses, no exceptions!
