Conducting the Research: Achievability

Discuss obstacles that could potentially hinder the achievability of studying your research problem; that is, factors that might create barriers to accessing, collecting, analyzing and/or reporting data on the problem. For instance, colleagues may be uncooperative or unwilling to participate, the police chief may feel the problem is too sensitive or that the problem does not really exist, etc. There may be barriers to obtaining access to the necessary data. Explain how these barriers could impact the validity and reliability of your proposed study.

Sports in the Future

 

The initial post of at least  300 words (excluding references) in response to the forum topic is due by Wednesday night, 11:55 pm Eastern Time

 

Forum | Sports in the Future

 

 

Please select one of the following topics for your discussion board assignment. Please clarify which question you are responding to by posting the question above your initial post. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.

Discussion Question choices:

  1. Your job at a U.S. “think tank” has led you to become a consultant on a project that is trying to predict what sports might look like from a global perspective in the year 2030. Using material from this chapter and the rest of the book, identify two things that will be different about sports in 2030 and explain why these differences would come about.

Difference #1:

Difference #2:

Explanation:

  1. If you could bring about one change in the meaning, purpose, or organization of sports, what would it be? What theory would guide your selection of the change, and what vantage point (see the chapter) would be best for making the change?

The change:

The theory:

The vantage point:

 

 

 

 

 

Part One: Agile Software Engineering

Part One: Agile Software Engineering

  1. Study the Agile Manifesto until you have it committed to memory: then write it here. Between each line explain in your own words what each line means and what benefits it provides ( especially benefits leading to the accelerated development and deployment of software.

 

 

 

  1. Describe what test-first development is. Use the following words in your answer: automated, system requirements, implementation, input, and output.

 

 

  1. Describe the benefits of User Stories. Use the following words in your answer: elicitation, requirements, test skeleton, release, back log, sprint, and test-first development.

 

  1. Compare and contrast the Scrum approach to project management with

conventional plan-based approaches as discussed in Chapter 23. Your

comparison should be based on the effectiveness of each approach for

planning the allocation of people to projects, estimating the cost of projects,

maintaining team cohesion and managing changes in project team

membership.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Part Two: System Modeling

  1. Briefly define each of the following: Use the following words at least once in your answers: sequence, use-case, activity
  • Context Models
  • Interaction Models
  • Structural Models
  • Behavioral Models
  • Model-Driven Architecture
  1. Assume your library project has the following features:
  • Search by Dewey number
  • Search by subject
  • Place books on reserve
  • Inter-library loan

Also assume you have defined the following user types

  • Student
  • Professor
  • Research Librarian
  • Technical Librarian/System Administrator

Here is what you need to do (relate these as much as possible to your Library Project): (review chapters 5 and 7)

  • Develop a sequence diagram showing the interactions involved when a professor places a book on reserve.
  • Draw an activity diagram that models the processing involved when a student searches by subject.
  • Draw state diagrams of the control software for an inter-library loan system. This system:
    • Checks local availability
    • Checks avalability elsewhere
    • Automates delivery process

 

 

Part Three: Object Oriented Design

7.Using the UML graphical notation for object classes, design object classes, identifying attributes and operations. Use your own experience to decide on the attributes and operations that should be associated with these objects.

 

Hint: Diagram 7.6 from the book is a good place to start.

ECON240 Final Exam Fall 2019

ECON240 Final Exam Fall 2019 –
Do All Problems (note there are 110 points, you will be graded out of 100)
1) 5 pt Wanda’s will power is 25% in convincing people to vote for her. She needs 50% of
the vote to win. Assuming everyone votes, in order for Wanda to win what percentage of
people must already be planning on voting for her?
2) 10pt Paula wants to help plan for environmental protection for the next hundred
years. Her financial expert is currently using a discount rate of 10% to determine the
present value of several different projects. Relative to today, what must the environment
be worth in 100 years to be counted of equal value ? Discuss how realistic this would be.
What would the discount rate have to be so that so that an environment worth twice as
much as today, would be counted as of equal value?
3) 25pt Take the (correct) answers from problem 4 of Homework 8/9, and answer the
following:
i) Assume M = 500, P
f = 25, Pt = 100, and the person starts with no training: What is
the optimal quantity of food, morsel size, number of bites, training, and savoring factor?
ii) What are the optimal amounts if the person started with 4 hours of training?
iii) Assume that training (when not used) atrophies at 2 units of year. Given the answer
for i) and ii) how much would utility decline after one year of atrophy? Does this change
optimal behavior?
iv) Describe and explain what might be missing from the model used.
v) Attempt to use formulas to represent your answer for iv)

4) 40 pt Consider two-person households, which run on the principle each should
experience the same utility from consumption. Let C
1 = Person 1’s consumption, and
C
2 = Person 2’s consumption. They have $90/day to spend on consumption for the whole
household.
a) Assume the individual’s utility equals how much they consume. Determine how much
each will consume, and what their utility levels will be
b) In this case the first person feels competitive with the second, but the second feels
compersion for the first. Their respective utility functions are as follows:
U
1 (C1,C2) = C1 * ( C1/C2), U2(C1,C2) = C1 * C2
Determine how much each will consume, and what their utility levels will be.
c) Let the household be as if in part b. However, person 1 can increase the second
person’s sense of compersion by giving a small gift that costs k. When they do utility
functions become:
U
1 (C1,C2) = (C1 – k) * [ (C1 – k) / (C2 + k) ] , U2(C1,C2) = (C1 – k)2 * (C2 + k)
Determine the formulas for C
1 and C2. If k = .5, determine how much each consumes
and their utility levels.
d) Describe how the gift changed their relationship and shares of consumption.
e) Assume that a person must consume at least $5/day to sustain the household. Which of
the above scenarios are sustainable as they are. Are there any where the gift giving
becomes problematic ? What endogenous constraints would be required to make it
sustainable (determine the new consumptions levels and utilities be, can the household
still run by the equal utility principle?)

5) 30 pt Imagine the following: A new social media platform “Space2Pace” has an
architecture where messages are delayed by m minutes before being sent. The sender
can cancel the message within those m minutes. Researchers show that the fraction of
regrettable messages cancelled by users (r) based on the following formula:
r = .10 * m
1/2
the users utility was based on the formula:
U = n – x
2
Where n = number of messages they write an hour ,
x = number of messages they wish they hadn’t sent per hour.
When expressing physically, messages take 1 minute to write, but 50% are regrettable.
When expressing emotionally, messages take 3 minutes to write, and 20% are regrettable
When expressing rationally, messages take 11 minutes to write, and 5% are regrettable
p = probability of message being regrettable, g = number of regrettable messages written
Users can work (or wait) on only one message a time (hint: how are g and x related?)
i) Fill in the following table:

Mindset m t p n g r x Utility
Physical 0
Emotional 0
Rational 0
Physical 1
Emotional 1
Rational 1
Physical 4
Emotional 4
Rational 4
Physical 9
Emotional 9
Rational 9

ii) For each mindset state the optimal available delay time.
iii) For each delay time, state the optimal mindset
iv) Given this information, how would you market “Space2Pace”?
Keep in mind that m =0 implies it is the same as regular email.
