19 19 Plagiarism and Cheating Monash University takes plagiarism and cheating very seriously. There are severe penalties for them. Plagiarism is legitimately using someone else's work, but not acknowledging it. Cheating is pretending that someone else's work is your own, in order to gain an unfair advantage. ( h/adt/policies/cheating.html ) It is OK to work together on your assignments, but each person must write the entire assignment alone and be able to explain and modify it on request.
