Plagiarism

Plagiarism is any intentional representation of another's ideas, words as one's own.  This includes the misuse of published material, electronic material and/or the work of other students.  This could be copying from a book, magazine, or the Internet without using the proper citation in a bibliography for the work being used.  Intentionally sharing work, papers, homework or allowing to copy, without the permission of the teacher, is also engaged in plagiarism. Example: If you loan your homework or essay to a friend to copy, you are guilty of plagiarism as well.
