Do you use it?? I was talking about it and a teacher overheard me and told our class it was plaigerizing, but not if you just use it for the quizes and for studying. Stealing papers from the internet is wrong and i know that but what about using it for studying. That is OK i think. What do you think?

Yeah that should be like completely ok! To use for a project and things, at the end of representing a project if you have got info off of the web, say that all of your information was from the website you got it from, and maybe even say the website address!
It should be ok that way, but just claiming it as your own is plagerizing.
