Similar math IA topics

My friend is doing his AI on proof of the binomial theorem and I am doing it proof of Leibniz's rule for the nth derivative of a product. Can someone tell me if we are not allowed to have both these topics in the same class. My concern is that we both have to use sigma notation identities, induction and some combination identities. The induction steps are different but similar and might even be considered as the same for the last few steps. I am worried that we might be braking some academic honesty rules. You can see the proof below

Well you wouldn't be breaking any academic honesty rules unless you both assisted each other. As to being allowed to do so, ask your teacher! There is nothing wrong with having similar topics... Or at least that is what my English teacher said about our IOP's :D

My math teacher told us that we are allowed to have the same topic as long as we are working independently on it - then both of us would probably approach this topic from different perspective. But you should probably ask your teacher just to be sure :)
