  • Penalty for finding a plagiarism is simple sever: non-passing grade. There will be no warnings.
  • Penalty is both for the person who copies other people answers as well as for the person who gave his answer/program to other people to copy.
  • Programs and solutions will be checked for plagiarisms between groups (all nine of them).
  • A copied solution is still a plagiarim if you change formatting or names of variables or other make other little changes.
  • When you use something you have found on the internet (e.g., a function from StackOverflow), make a comment indicating the source. This is important even if you change the fragment.
  • It is absolutely forbidden to take a solution from the internet and submit it, even after some changes. usually too much structure of the original is left and you risk that it will be deemed plagiarism.
  • It is forbidden to do a task for someone else. Attempts will meet the same penalty as plagiarism: non-passing grade.
