Multitasking Math

Brian Christian: How to manage your time more effectively (according to machines) | TED Talk 

Briefly outline four to eight (4–8) tasks you perform daily.
Explain how you might use the quadratic pass method, outlined in the video, to minimize contact switches between these tasks.
Explain why this method might help you better manage your time.
Explain whether you feel, in your case, it is possible to eliminate all contact switches to one set schedule. Why, or why not?

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?
Explain why you chose to rank the tasks in the order you did.
Explain how much longer it would take you to complete your task list if you chose to rank them first versus completing them in random or chronological order.
