Plagiarism is a serious academic offense!
"Plagiarism is the intentional offering of the words, ideas, or computer data programs and/or graphics of others for ones own in any academic exercise. Examples of plagiarism include (but are not limited to): 1. The offering of anothers work, whether verbatim or paraphrased, as original material in an academic paper; 2. The offering of anothers original ideas or concepts as ones own, in an academic paper or assessed exercise; 3. The inclusion of anothers material in ones own work without appropriate or accurate citation or credit." Armstrong Student Code of Conduct p. 338-339, B1-4.
