 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, YESthat's what i'm saying EdBoy okay theneveryone 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
