The spiral model, a methodology that maximizes risk management to reduce risk to its lowest form. It is also more appropriate for handling complex requirements that are needed for the information system. Because of its iterative process, it is easy to adjust to ongoing requirements that the client may want without any issues arising. This is best suited for companies that are medium to large of size, as most of these system projects run from medium to high risk. Although this can be a very expensive approach, it is one of the most preferred due to its iterative risk analysis approach to building a system. Therefore small businesses will not benefit from this approach due to its cost and having low risk for their type of projects. For a multimedia company as yourself, I can understand you will need top quality software to operate in the industry. Seeing that you have been in the business for 10 years and are very experienced. This approach would be very suitable to your needs due to medium to high risk involved for the building the system, assuming that you are a medium size business. As (Boehm, Wilfred 2010) have stated “Rather than develop the completed product in one step, multiple cycles are performed with each taking steps calculated to reduce the most significant remaining risks.” The first step to this approach would be to determine what requirements and objectives you want for your system. From there constraints are laid out with possible alternatives of the system.…
New Balance is moving into a toning market with a pair of attractive shoes that has hidden balance technology. The purpose is to present, “Why walk when you can tone your body”, when you’re simply just walking or even doing your everyday chores. True Balance shoes promises 29% muscle activation and 10% calorie burn. Many women are getting intrigued with the idea of losing weight by these shoes from the percentages, but what if they percentages were lower. Would you still buy them? Even though,…
Francisco Gutierrez 03.03 Linear Functions 1. The equation we have is 2x+3y=1200. The first thing you would need to do in the equation is subtract 2x to both sides. 2x cancels out and now we subtract 2x and 1200. You would end up getting 3y=2x-1200. Then finally, you would have to divide everything by -3. Your final answer for this question is y=-2/3x+400. Your slope is -2/3 and your y-intercept is 400. 2. So we know that our slope is -2/3 and the y-intercept is 400. You have one point on the…
Memory and personal identity are an integral part of our lives. These characteristics and traits assist us in the way we make decisions and approach situations. Memory in relation to personal identity is a topic that has been studied by several Philosophers. The question of whether or not memory presupposes identity is a circular one, and therefore makes this question important. To study this, I looked at Parfits theory of Psychological continuity, and how it was seen as problematic due to its…
1. Henri Lebesgue [8] Lebesgue is credited for many amazing discoveries to different areas of mathematics. In the area of topology, Lebesgue is known for his covering theorem which is used for finding the dimensions of a set. He is also credited for his work on the Fourier series. He was able to demonstrate that using term by term integration of a series that were Lebesgue integrable functions was always valid and therefore, gave validation to Fourier’s proof of his series. What is now…
Materiality and Identity Megan Holmes’s “Miraculous Images in Renaissance Florence” examines many of the ramifications of materiality. The materiality, an image’s physical properties, has direct impacts on the expression and popularity of immagini miracolose. These sacred images are subjects of miracles throughout the late 13th to 16th centuries. Two of the most important ramifications of materiality include the accessibility of the religious images and manifestation of the miracles. In this…
1. What are the least, and most, amount of distinct zeroes of a 7th degree polynomial, given that at least one root is a complex number? Answer: If the equation is 7th degree then it has 7 roots. Those roots can be complex or real. Complex roots always come in pairs, so if it has one, then it has 2, the other one being the conjugate of the first one. This in other words, if one complex root is a + bi, then the other complex root is a – bi. If at least one root were complex, then we would have a…
Fundamental Theorem of Calculus The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus evaluate an antiderivative at the upper and lower limits of integration and take the difference. This theorem is separated into two parts. The first part is called the first fundamental theorem of calculus and states that one of the antiderivatives of some function may be obtained as the integral of the function with a variable bound of integration. The second part of the theorem, called the second fundamental theorem of…
John Gutmann was one of America’s most distinctive photographers. Gutmann was born in Germany where he became an artist. He later fled Germany due to the Nazi’s because he was a Jew. Gutmann moved to San Francisco and re-established himself as a photojournalist captivating the lives of Americans. He mainly took photographs of people who were imperfect like himself because of his Jewish nationality. Gutmann targeted the poor, circus folk, the gay community and the rich. Two of Gutmann’s works are…
The fundamental theorem of Calculus: The fundamental theorem of calculus asserts the interrelated properties of integration and differentiation. It says that a function when differentiated, can be brought back by integrating (anti-derivative) or a function when integrated, can be brought back by differentiation. First theorem: Let f be a function that is integrable on [a,x] for each x in [a,b], then let c be such that a≤c≤b and define a new function A as follows, A(x)=∫_c^x▒f(x)dt, if a≤x≤b.…
