1). Define the terms “input” and “data”. What are the various forms of instructions? Explain briefly. Answer: input is any data and instructions entered into the memory of a computer, and data is a collection of unprocessed text, numbers, images, audio, and video. Once data is in memory, the computer interprets and executes instructions to process the data into information. A program is a series of instructions that tells a computer what to do and how to do it. When a programmer writes a program, he or she enters the program into the computer by using a keyboard, mouse, or other input device. Programs respond to commands that a user issue. A command is a instruction that causes a program to perform a specific action. A user response is an instruction a user issues by replying to a question displayed by a program. 2. Give an example of a controller for a media player and describe its function. List the various kinds of gaming controllers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
