Read all the following information before attempting your assignment. This is an individual assignment.
You may not collude with any other individual, or plagiarise their work. Students are expected to present the
results of their own thinking and writing. Never copy another student’s work (even if the other student “explains it to
you first”) and never give your written work to others. Never copy from the web or any other resource. Remember
you are meant to generate the solution to the questions by yourself. Suspected collusion or plagiarism will be dealt
with according to RMIT policy.
When asked to “briefly explain” something, or to describe something “informally”, an answer of one to three
English sentences is expected. When asked to “explain” or “justify” something, an answer of one or two English
paragraphs is expected. When asked to “prove” or “show” something, a formal proof or argument is expected.
Submission Instructions: You need to submit one single PDF file containing your answers via WebLearn. The
PDF file must be typeset in a word processor (for example, scanned files will not be marked).
Corrections: From time to time, students or staff find errors (e.g., typos or wrong symbols) in the assignment
specification. In that case, corrected versions will be uploaded to the course web page as quickly as possible and an
announcement will be posted on the course web page and also sent by email to all students.
Forum postings on assignment: Do not ever post any information on the forum that may disclose how to solve
a question or what the solution may be. You can only post assignment related questions for clarification on what is
being asked, for example, whether a formal proof is required in a given exercise or to clarify certain notation. Any
post discussing possible solutions or strategies may directly be considered plagiarism, see above. If in doubt, do not
post and send your question to the head tutor instead.
Silent Policy: A silent policy will take effect 24 hours before this assignment is due. This means that no question
about this assignment will be answered, whether it is asked on the newsgroup, by email, or in person.
