EdBoy | saobi: if it is clear that you copied it exactly. kilimanjaro: lol |

HiLander | is because your instructor is assuming you knew that already |

echelon-\ | what did saobi do /. ? |

HiLander | in other words, you got lucky. |

saobi | this is getting more ludicrous |

kilimanjaro | echelon-\, saobi was wearing a dress and started eating mushrooms |

EdBoy | echelon-\: he dug himself into a hole |

saobi | such a fucked up system |

zigggggy | bah... plagiarisim has been taken to the extreme.. every little thing is now considered plagiarism |

echelon-\ | tell me the real thing he did |

EdBoy | and is having a bit of trouble getting out |

echelon-\ | i want to argue |

EdBoy | okay |

HiLander | this is very ludicrous |

TRWBW | any chance of #not-math'ing this? |

EdBoy | he answered a simple problem using a well known science formula, and his teacher cried "plagiarism!" |

HiLander | no, he didn't |

echelon-\ | which science formula ? |

EdBoy | TRWBW: hey, if we #not-math'd this then we'd have nothing to talk about :D |

echelon-\ | ok HiLander, explain what happened.. |

saobi | f=ma |

EdBoy | echelon-\: F = ma |

HiLander | but he thinks it's comparable |

EdBoy | force equals mass times acceleration |

saobi | they are saying, if i use f=ma without citing, i am in violation |

HiLander | you're saying you solved the problem with F=ma |

EdBoy | now if it was say |

yossarian | saobi: 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 |

TRWBW | i mean plagiarism, even of math, isn't really a math concept. maybe should be in #not-math |

HiLander | this should be in #not-math |

EdBoy | acceleration equals final velocity minus initial velocity over time, then yes |

saobi | HiLander, YES that's what i'm saying |

EdBoy | okay then everyone shut up and/or take this to #not-math |

kilimanjaro | TRWBW, discussing whether or not something is a math concept is not really a math concept either |

EdBoy | I'll get back to lurking. |

sumpt | kilimanjaro: mentioning the discussion of whether or not something is a math concept is not a math concept |
