Cheating in math classes
Posted:

Hi everyone. I'm a 3rd year math education student and I have a question. I was wondering if anybody would be interested in sharing their personal policy on cheating and plagarism. In my school days, I've seen everything from the let it go and "catch it next time" approach to giving the student a zero on the assignment and reviewing all previous work from the semester to see if any cheating was missed. Is your cheating policy set by your school's administration or by your department head or are you allowed to have your own policy? I was also wondering, if your policy is set by your administration, how does this affect how you teach and what kind of evaluations you give? I'm still trying to develop my own philosophy on the matter, so any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
