EdBoysaobi: if it is clear that you copied it exactly.
kilimanjaro: lol
HiLanderis because your instructor is assuming you knew that already
echelon-\what did saobi do /.
?
HiLanderin other words, you got lucky.
saobithis is getting more ludicrous
kilimanjaroechelon-\, saobi was wearing a dress and started eating mushrooms
EdBoyechelon-\: he dug himself into a hole
saobisuch a fucked up system
zigggggybah... plagiarisim has been taken to the extreme.. every little thing is now considered plagiarism
echelon-\tell me the real thing he did
EdBoyand is having a bit of trouble getting out
echelon-\i want to argue
EdBoyokay
HiLanderthis is very ludicrous
TRWBWany chance of #not-math'ing this?
EdBoyhe answered a simple problem using a well known science formula, and his teacher cried "plagiarism!"
HiLanderno, he didn't
echelon-\which science formula ?
EdBoyTRWBW: hey, if we #not-math'd this then we'd have nothing to talk about :D
echelon-\ok HiLander, explain what happened..
saobif=ma
EdBoyechelon-\: F = ma
HiLanderbut he thinks it's comparable
EdBoyforce equals mass times acceleration
saobithey are saying, if i use f=ma without citing, i am in violation
HiLanderyou're saying you solved the problem with F=ma
EdBoynow if it was say
yossariansaobi: you should cite sources that you use. Generally (but not always), professors will accept "stuff I learned in this class" as common knowledge, with the consequence that "stuff I learned in this class" doesn't need to be explicitly cited
TRWBWi mean plagiarism, even of math, isn't really a math concept. maybe should be in #not-math
HiLanderthis should be in #not-math
EdBoyacceleration equals final velocity minus initial velocity over time, then yes
saobiHiLander, YES
that's what i'm saying
EdBoyokay then
everyone shut up and/or take this to #not-math
kilimanjaroTRWBW, discussing whether or not something is a math concept is not really a math concept either
EdBoyI'll get back to lurking.
sumptkilimanjaro: mentioning the discussion of whether or not something is a math concept is not a math concept
