· Week 5 Assignment

Note: This is a research-writing course. You need to develop each requirement in full paragraphs, not sentences. I need to see proof of understanding of each requirement. Some questions have multiple parts. Answer each within the same numbered question.

1. Explain the purpose of pseudocode. In doing so, explain how and why it differs from natural language and formal programming languages.

2. From everyday life, provide and discuss examples of sequential, conditional, and iterative operations. How do the ways we state these operations in everyday life differ from the ways we state them in pseudocode? Why might there be a difference?

3. Explain why it is necessary for the pattern-matching algorithm to have a “loop inside of a loop.”

4. Why do we use binary encodings to represent information on the computer? What would be the pros and cons of using base-10 instead of base-2?

5. Explain the relationship between Boolean logic and computer circuits. Why is Boolean logic so important to computer science?

6. Explain the purpose of the steps in the sum-of-products circuit design algorithm. Why must each step be done, and why in that order?

Note: Some questions have multiple parts. Answer each within the same numbered question.

1. What features of the different languages you’ve seen do you like best? Are all those features in the same language? Discuss why there are so many different languages, all with the same underlying approach. Why isn’t there just one “right” language?

2. Compare the software development process with processes suggested for writing papers. Are there parallels; are there significant differences?

3. If you were designing a language and wanted it to be more like natural language, how would you choose to describe conditional statements and loops? How would your form differ from those of the languages you’ve studied?

4. When might a business decide not to have a web presence? What conditions might cause a business to avoid a web presence, and what changes might cause the business to reconsider?
