My Favorite One-Liners: Part 96

In this series, I’m compiling some of the quips and one-liners that I’ll use with my students to hopefully make my lessons more memorable for them.

When assigning homework or a take-home project, my students may ask what the rules are for collaborating with their peers. As a general rule, I want my students to talk to each other and to collaborate on homework, even if that opens the possibility that some student may directly copy their answers from somebody else. (I figure that if any student abuses collaboration, they will get appropriately punished when they take in-class exams.) So, when students ask about rules for collaborating, I tell them:
