Individual Work and Collaboration
In preparing your submissions for homework and laboratory projects you are authorized to use the textbook, your notes, websites, online documentation, and any other reference materials to which you have access. You may also discuss the assignment in general with other members of the class or with anyone else whom you believe can be of assistance (including possibly the instructor). While referring to third-party code can be helpful in devising your own solution, it is also extremely dangerous as it is all too easy to plagiarize without realizing it. It is for exactly this reason that viewing source code published online that may be relevant to a product is almost always strictly forbidden in corporate settings due to intellectual property concerns.
The work that you submit for grading must, however, be exclusively your own work. If you do obtain assistance from another individual, you must include an explicit note to that effect in your submission for the assignment. Further, all references used must be cited. This means that if you are using various websites for assistance in laboratory assignments and/or homework you must cite the exact URLs. In addition, any other printed material used must be explicitly cited. A non-exhaustive list of plagiarism examples include:
Copying third-party code verbatim that was published in an online source code repository, forum, or other reference site such as GitHub, GitLab, Stack Overflow, Wikipedia, or similar
Adapting an algorithm found in third-party code published online
Collaborating on code with other students, such as adapting code written by another student or working together on a shared code base at any point
