Other Things

A method of taking your work (lab & other) with you

A hard copy (you need to submit a hard copy)
Student drive – don’t work there directly; too slow
USB memory stick
A combination of these is highly recommended.
IMPORTANT: keep multiple copies of your work as losing your work does not allow you to make a late lab or assignment submission.
Make sure you bring your homework with you before coming to the class as leaving it at home does not allow you to make a late lab or assignment submission either.
Make sure you take everything with you when you leave the class room
(don’t lose your flash drive)

Plagiarism – to take and use the thoughts, writings, inventions, etc of another persons as ones own (Oxford 1990)
Do not COPY and PASTE other’s work
 Complete your work individually
