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

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

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 a… Expand

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 the… Expand
