Academic Integrity

Plagiarism is defined as using another author's work without giving them credit in a bibliography or footnote or quoting a source without giving credit in a bibliography or footnote.

Assignments are to be completed on your own, not with the help of a friend or a tutor. If you are having trouble, email your teacher for assistance. Do not lend your answers for others to use and do not copy answers from other students to present as your own. Plagiarizing (or using someone else's work or borrowing someone else's answers as though they are your own) could result in your receiving a mark of zero, so be sure to write in your own words.

Contact your teacher if you are not certain if something is plagiarism or not, or if you require assistance with an assignment.
