What is plagiarism and how do you avoid it?

If you copy or rewrite other people's assignments or texts, it is plagiarism. Whether it's just one sentence or many, it is considered plagiarism. It is plagiarism to copy sentences or paragraphs from a text without citing your source.

Translating sentences or paragraphs and inserting them into the assignment is plagiarism. To 'copy/paste' different texts together into an assignment is plagiarism.
