ONE ASPECT OF WEEK ONE WAS DATA COMPRESSION




Tasks:

There are ten (10) tasks, one for each week:  the tasks are detailed below.  There is a table to complete for each task.  Please fill in the information required.  An example of a completed task is below.  Note the first response (resource 1) is good – so aim for something like this.  The second response (resource 2) is not acceptable, so if you submit anything like it, you won’t pass the assignment!  The reasons?  Poor resource selection (Wikipedia), no Harvard reference and a block cut and paste from the site (no citation, no original content).
