the only things that we keep doing at school is copying and pasting other people's ideas.

I don't know what is the point of copying and pasting other peoples algorithms?


Nor do I.
And the simple solution is: stop doing it.

I don't spend my days copy'n'pasting other peoples software (or generally even my own). So instead of "solving homework problems" by googling the question, why not read the question and try designing your own algorithm? Writing your own code? Testing it? Debugging it? And yes - often throwing it away and starting again!

This world is full of opportunities: if you are spending them on copy'n'paste then don't whine about that - just stop pressing CTRL+C ...
