Plagiarism in math IA's

Recommended Posts

So I was doing my math IA, and I had some problems with solving the equations (3x3 systems of equations). If my friend explained how to solve them and so we use the same algebraic method, could this be considered as plagiarism? Because everything else is different, only these methods are the same, but comeon, there are not, like, million methods to solve them... What do you guys think? I am freaking about this right now, as I don't know what to do, I really don't want to plagiarise anything whatsoever. Cheers.

The same happened to me in fact, one of my friend got his hands on a IA common solution from a know person in India, and most of our class used this common solution same answers and same methods but what they did is completely changed the wordings !!

I suggest to you to change the wordings in your IA, and explain precisely what you did, also maybe you can use your GDC to show( 3x3 systems of equations) and take a screen shot of that and put it in your IA !

Oohh also you can check your IA on turnitin !

Well, our wordings are of course different, because I only use the same method, I did not copy-paste it. Just used the same method... Well, I hope everything's gonna be fine. THANK YOU! Now I feel better.

of course it's fine, cause anyway there will be so many other people out there using the same method as you.
