The purpose of the Signature Assignment is to have you work with real-life data to answer a real-life question using the tools, technology, and skills of MTH/219. In the first week, you must develop a question that can be answered with numerical data and that spans over at least ten years. For example, “How has the population of the world changed over the past 50 years, and when will the population be unsustainable?”
In a Microsoft® Word document, write the topic/question you are addressing, where you plan to find your data even if it is one of the below sources, and why you chose this topic. Your paper should be 30 to 45 words long. You can either choose a topic from the Student Topics and Questions List or can create your own. If you chose to create your own, you must get instructor approval.
Here is a list of possible data sources to find your data:
Select the type of table under Law Enforcement or Incarcerations.
Then select the type of data you are looking for from the dropdown menus and click on the Microsoft®Excel®table, which will automatically download on your computer.
Census data(Population, economy, business, education, employment, health, housing, income, trade)
UN data(income, trade, religion, health, poverty)
Globalization, health, and agriculture data
You may choose to find data elsewhere, but you must get it approved by your instructor. It is very important the data you collect meet the following requirements:
It has data from a trusted/peer-reviewed source that is numeric per year.
You can collect at least ten data points (data over at least ten years old).
Your question can be answered with the data.
1.) You have a team of 6 people and you decide to add 4 more. How many more communication channels do you have?
2.) The project you are working on has 32 stakeholders. 3 more senior SME’s are added to your project team. How many communication channels are you working with?
3.) Your latest project is having problems. Your team of 10 people has been cut due to your budget overruns. You lost 4 people. How many communication channels remain?
4.) You are given a new project from your sponsor and you start to assemble your team. You acquire 5 people from your current department, a financial analyst from the Controller, and a Business Analyst from Operations. You also get 3 SME’s from IT and your team is complete. How many communication channels do you have at this point?
