# 5 reasons that Explain how you might use the quadratic pass method, outlined in the video, to minimize contact switches between these tasks.

Briefly outline four to eight (4-8) tasks you perform daily.

-Wake up –

Check my phone

-Get out of bed

-Brush my teeth

-Get dressed

-Eat breakfast

-Leave for work

-Work

-Come home from work

-Eat dinner

-Watch TV

-Go to bed

Explain how you might use the quadratic pass method, outlined in the video, to minimize contact switches between these tasks. The quadratic pass method would involve creating a list of all of the tasks that need to be completed in a day, and then looking for pairs of tasks that can be completed consecutively in order to minimize the number of contact switches between tasks. For example, if brushing teeth and getting dressed are two consecutive tasks on the list, then the quadratic pass method would suggest completing those two tasks back-to-back in order to minimize contact switches.

Explain whether you feel, in your case, it is possible to eliminate all contact switches to one set schedule. Why, or why not?

It is not possible to eliminate all contact switches to one set schedule because some tasks, like eating breakfast and leaving for work, cannot be completed simultaneously. However, the quadratic pass method can help to minimize the number of contact switches between tasks.

Describe how you ranked the tasks you selected, in Part 1, in order of importance using the ranking method. What does your task list look like after ranking it?

I ranked the tasks I selected in Part 1 in order of importance using the following criteria:

-Wake up

-Check my phone

-Get out of bed

-Brush my teeth

-Get dressed

-Eat breakfast

-Leave for work

-Work

-Come home from work

-Eat dinner

-Watch TV

-Go to bed

1. Wake up

2. Check my phone

3. Get out of bed

4. Brush my teeth

5. Get dressed

6. Eat breakfast

7. Leave for work

8. Work

9. Come home from work 1

0. Eat dinner

11. Watch TV

12. Go to bed

Explain why you chose to rank the tasks in the order you did

I chose to rank the tasks in the order I did because I believe that they are the most important tasks that need to be completed in a day. Wake up, get out of bed, brush my teeth, and get dressed are all tasks that need to be completed in the morning in order to start the day. Eating breakfast, leaving for work, and working are all tasks that need to be completed in order to maintain employment. Coming home from work, eating dinner, and watching TV are all tasks that need to be completed in order to wind down at the end of the day. Going to bed is the last task on the list because it is the task that signals the end of the day.

Explain how much longer it would take to complete the list if rank them first versus completing them in random or chronological order using the quadratic pass method presented.

It would take longer to complete the list if I ranked the tasks first because I would have to spend time ranking the tasks in order of importance. However, using the quadratic pass method, I would be able to minimize the number of contact switches between tasks, which would help me to complete the tasks more efficiently.
