We describe an education model that was developed and put in place to improve student engagement and attainment in a first year undergraduate programming course. The work is founded in a checkpoint-based formative assessment experiment undertaken for two years, the success of which is analysed in this document. The results provide evidence leading to a move(More)
Systemic hereditary amyloidoses are autosomal dominant diseases associated with mutations in genes encoding ten different proteins. The clinical phenotype has implications on therapeutic approach, but it is commonly variable and largely dependent on the type of mutation. Except for rare cases involving gelsolin or transthyretin, patients are heterozygous(More)
In this paper a new approach to rational discrete-time approximations to continuous fractional-order systems of the form 1/(s α +p) is proposed. We will show that such fractional-order LTI system can be decomposed into subsystems. One has the classic behavior and the other is similar to a Finite Impulse Response (FIR) system. The conversion from(More)
The intention of our research is to present a solution for the distribution of a portfolio of telecommunication services, such as high speed Internet access, local and long distance telephony, cable TV, and aggregated services, over the Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC) infrastructure of a cable operator. For this purpose we have divided the logical network's(More)
