Tracking with prescribed transient behaviour
Universal tracking control is investigated in the context of a class S of M -input, M -output dynamical systems modelled by functional differential equations. The class encompasses a wide variety ofExpand

New opportunities for encouraging higher level mathematical learning by creative use of emerging computer aided assessment
This article defines ‘higher level mathematical skills’ and details an important class: that of constructing instances of mathematical objects satisfying certain properties. Comment is made on theExpand
Assessing mathematics automatically using computer algebra and the internet
This paper reports some recent developments in mathematical computer aided assessment which employs computer algebra to evaluate students’ work using the internet. Technical and educational issuesExpand
STACK: making many fine judgements rapidly
This paper concerns a computer aided assessment system for mathematics known as STACK, a System for Teaching and Assessment using a Computer algebra Kernel. Expand
Systems of Controlled Functional Differential Equations and Adaptive Tracking
An adaptive servomechanism is developed in the context of the problem of approximate or practical tracking (with prescribed asymptotic accuracy), by the system output, of any admissible reference signal (absolutely continuous and bounded with essentially bounded derivative) for every member of controlled dynamical systems modelled by functional differential equations. Expand
Assessing elementary algebra with STACK
This paper concerns computer aided assessment (CAA) of mathematics in which a computer algebra system (CAS) is used to help assess students' responses to elementary algebra questions. Using aExpand
How Round Is Your Circle?: Where Engineering and Mathematics Meet
How do you draw a straight line? How do you determine if a circle is really round? These may sound like simple or even trivial mathematical problems, but to an engineer the answers can mean theExpand
Computer Aided Assessment of Mathematics Using STACK
Assessment is a key component of all teaching and learning, and for many students is akey driver of their activity. Expand
