Suppose there's a difficult proof on one of my homework problems in an undergrad course, and suppose I find on the internet a clever, elegant proof whose basic framework I use to construct a slightly modified proof, perhaps with some added explanation (for example, add a "because" or "since" where formerly the reader was supposed to make the inference) to show that I fully understand what I am writing down. Is this unethical on my part? Should I cower away in shame?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
