The point of reimplementing well known algorithms at your stage is not that you copy and paste the solution, is that you learn how to solve a problem, being it well known helps you and the teacher to verify that your solution is correct, so even if you reach the same solution the book does (which may not be the only way to do it, as there may be better and more optimized solutions), you have learned how to think about the problem and solve it, and those that copy and paste are not learning anything besides how to copy and paste, and hopefully, how to Google the solution.

Also, even if the teacher can't differentiate your solution from a copied one, if you're asked to explain it, he will quickly realize that you dind't do it, or that even bothered to understand what it does (Interviews are a different bag, especially when done by non technical people).
"Science fiction is any idea that occurs in the head and doesn’t exist yet, but soon will, and will change everything for everybody, and nothing will ever be the same again." Ray Bradbury
