This is the first of five independent application assignments. Each assignment will allow you to learn how the topics of this course apply to the areas of computer science, Internet technology, or technology applications.

For this assignment, imagine that we are many years into the future and you have been hired by a technology company to create a human door key system. When a person steps on a special mat containing sensors that is located at his or her front door, these sensors grab information, send it through a set of circuits, and reach a one of two logical conclusions:

Yes (or 1), the person lives in this house and may enter.

No (or 0), this person does not live in this house and may not enter.

If the result is yes, the door automatically opens. If the result is no, you can decide what happens.

For this assignment, complete the following:

Define at least five features that can be sensed by the magic door mat such that each feature has a result of 0 or 1. This magical mat can sense anything, such as weight, height, eye color, hair color, gender, and so on. Because the result of the sensor can only be 0 or 1, you will have to think about how to do this. As an example, if the weight is greater than 125, the sensor returns a 1, else a 0. Similarly, if the hair color is NOT brown, the sensor returns a 0, else 1. These are just some ideas.

Explain each of your features clearly, including exactly what the 0 or 1 represents in each case.

Using at least five gates and at least five inputs, create a logical circuit that describes your system. This circuit will have at least five inputs, at least five gates, and one—and only one—output. Remember, the input values to and from the gates are only 0 or 1, but you can name them according to what they represent.

Create a logic table to show some examples of people who will and will not be able to enter. This table will be labeled with your attributes and will contain values of only 0 and 1.

Describe your circuit using a Boolean expression with proper use of AND, OR, and NOT symbols.

Describe what will happen to a person who cannot enter (that is, when the output of the circuit is 0). This is up to you, so feel free to be creative. Include at least one paragraph explaining your circuit, your features, and what will happen in cases where a person can or cannot enter the door. Hint: You can have the door inform the person that they cannot enter and why.

You may find it useful to read Chapter 11, pages 532–542, and look at the examples. You can combine attributes to make sure only the right person gets in. For example, if a person’s weight is greater than or equal to 125, you can have a 1. If the weight is less than 125, you can have a 0. Therefore, if the person weighs 250 pounds, this would result in a 1. You can use the circuit creatively with AND, OR, and NOT gates to grant or deny access using a set of measurable attributes.

Review the Boolean Circuits and Technology Scoring Guide to understand how you will be graded on this assignment.

ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS

Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.

Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.

One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.

I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.

Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.

In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.

Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).

Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.

APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).

Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.

I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.

Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.

As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.

It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.

Lopes Write Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to Lopes Write, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.

Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.

Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?

Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.

Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.

Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.

If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.

I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.

As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.

Communication

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:

Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.

Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.

Please, be advised I do NOT accept any assignments by email. If you are having technical issues with uploading an assignment, contact the technical department and inform me of the issue. If you have any issues that would prevent you from getting your assignments to me by the deadline, please inform me to request a possible extension.

Plagiarism is highly prohibited. Please ensure you are citing your sources correctly using APA 7th edition. All assignments including discussion posts should be formatted in APA with the appropriate spacing, font, margin, and indents. Any papers not well formatted would be returned back to you, hence, I advise you review APA formatting style. I have attached a sample paper in APA format and will also post sample discussion responses in subsequent announcements.

I understand this is a lot of information to cover in 5 weeks, however, the Bible says in Philippians 4:13 that we can do all things through Christ that strengthens us. Even in times like this, we are encouraged by God’s word that we have that ability in us to succeed with His strength. I pray that each and every one of you receives strength for this course and life generally as we navigate through this pandemic that is shaking our world today. Relax and enjoy the course!
