1. Alice & Jonathan are taking classes but have decided to move to the online format instead of face-to-face. Up to this point they shared a desktop system at home for document prep & used the school’s lab equipment for more advanced software application requirements. They checked e-mail and did additional online activities at work. Now they wish to be able to do all these activities at home. The existing desktop system they used to share has an updated operating system and adequate memory. They have purchased two laptops & want to create a wireless network for their home. a.Design a wireless network for Alice and Jonathan using their existing desktop & 2 laptops. b.Describe how they could use the home network.c.What types of hardware, software, connectivity components, etc., would be required to implement the home network? d.Security issues will need to be considered. What are the risks to their network? What will they need to fully protect their home network? 2.What is social networking? Define at least two of the privacy issues related to participating on social networking sites? For each issue, describe a real example of how this might happen. What kinds of measures can be taken to guard privacy in the use of such sites? 3.RAM is a temporary storage space that is used to store program instructions and data. But accessing RAM is inefficient because a CPU runs faster than RAM. What special storage space (other than RAM) might a computer access that also temporarily stores program instructions and data? Describe how this storage space works, where it is located in the computer and how the speed compares with other types of storage such as the RAM or hard drive. 4. People with severe disabilities can be helped to lead independent self-supportive lives with the use of assistive technologies. Because these special technologies can help them communicate their intentions & effectively control their environment, especially to operate a computer, they may be able to find employment in spite of their physical, mental, or social challenges. Your textbook in Chapter 5 looks at the future of input and output devices. Pick one of the innovations listed there or from “Many Students Wonder” & discuss how this innovation might help someone with a physical, mental or social disability. In your discussion, include a description of the person and the disability (create a scenario), the technology to be implemented, and the specific benefits the technology will provide. 5. Define the term computer-based information systems. In your definition, discuss 3 types of information systems, the audience or level of management served by each, and how the systems benefit the organization. 6. List & describe at least four ways in which processor speed can be increased. Short answer questions: 7. What happens in an Excel spreadsheet if a cell contains numerical data but the column is too narrow to display the value? How can you correct this? 8. What is conditional formatting with Highlight Cells Rules? Give one example of how this feature can be useful in business. 9. What is the difference between a relative cell reference and an absolute cell reference? When would you make a reference absolute? Provide an example of when you would use an absolute cell reference. 10. Think back to your Excel project–the personal budget. What function would you use to find the largest value stored in the monthly entries—January through December–(not the budget, total or average columns) in your worksheet? How would you enter this function (how would you select it and what might the format look like)? 11. Think about the Excel project and Access database project you completed in this class. Why is each Office application appropriate for the tasks that were part of these projects? Could you have used a spreadsheet to store the data you entered into the database? Could you have used a database to complete your personal budget? Explain response. 12. It’s 1 hr before the due date/time & you have finished your Access project but take a break, during the break someone accidentally deletes your database file. What might you have done which would enable you to recover the project without re-doing your work? 13. You have added a special video from your files to your Power Point presentation. You send the presentation to your instructor, but she says the video doesn’t play when run. What might be the problem? 14. Describe how you would apply slide transitions to your PP presentation.
