The major purpose of this study is to find out the extent to which previous knowledge of Book-keeping will predict students’ academic performance in Principles of Accounts 1 (BED 111) at the NCE 100 level in College of Education, Ikere Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria. The study employed an ex-post facto research design with a sample of 371 selected from a population of 708. Three research hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significant using T-test, Standard deviation, Multiple regression and Analysis of variance. A finding from the study reveals that previous knowledge of Book-keeping significantly contributes to the prediction of academic performance of students in Principles of Accounts 1 (BED 111) among others. It was concluded that the influence of previous knowledge in teaching/learning process provides the background to framework upon which new learning will be placed. It is recommended that Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) should properly streamline
The Students’ Variables as Predictor of Secondary School Students’ Performance in Physics in Ekiti West Local Government Area of Ekiti State, Nigeria was investigated in this study. The study adopted a survey research design of the ex-post facto type. The sample comprised 120 senior secondary school II Physics students drawn from the six secondary schools in Ekiti West Local Government Area of Ekiti state. The instruments used for the study was questionnaire and past academic performance in Physics of the students involved in the study. Two research hypotheses were generated and analysed in the study using Pearson’s Moment Correlation and Multiple regression statistical analysis. Among others, the study revealed that: students‘ variables (study habit, attitude to and interest of students in Physics) are better predictors of students’ performance in Physics, while student gender has no influence on students academic performance (is a poor predictor).
In Communication system, the system capacity and performance are adversely affected and degraded by interference. Hence, power control plays a prominent role in an interference-limited system, which increases the efficiency by mitigating the adjacent and co-Channel interference in the system. In this paper, primarily power control is said to be used in maintaining the acceptable Carrier to Interference Ratio (CIR) by meeting some Quality of service (QoS) requirements Objective function that is defined as maximum channel capacity in a power constraint scenario. The signals in a radio channel undergo different propagation effects like reflection, refraction, scattering and shadowing. Hence, the distribution of users across subcarrier groups as well as their transmission powers within a given cell has a significant effect on how users and power are accordingly distributed elsewhere in the network to maximize the capacity of the system thereby enhancing its performance
The pre-engineered steel building system construction has great advantages to the single storey buildings, practical and efficient alternative to conventional buildings, the System representing one central model within multiple disciplines. Preengineered building creates and maintains in real time multidimensional, data rich views through a project support is currently being implemented by Staad pro software packages for design and engineering.
The study aimed to discover answers pertaining to process of intervention and perception based upon a 36 item questionnaire put forth to 40 parents having children with multiple disabilities. Children were in the mean of 9.9 years and attended NIEPMD for 2.18 years; most frequent (48%) associated conditions were Cerebral Palsy along with mental retardation. The mean age of suspicion by parents was at 24.2months followed by doctor visit by 27.2 months and initiation of rehabilitation by 56.14 months. The core concern for 80% parents was to develop motor and speech skills, although the majority (55%) had neglected speech therapy. Clients preferred a transdisclipinary approach (68%) over the present multidisciplinary approach. Acceptance of the child’s condition is a crucial, 56% parents took an average of 8.03years to accept their child’s disability followed by 28% who were in the bargaining stage.
Clinical manifestations of lymphatic filariasis depend on the area of lymphatic involvement and the duration of infection. An eight year old child presented with right cervical lymph node. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) with 22 Gauge needle from the lymph node revealed multiple coiled larvae of Wuchereria bancrofti in a background of reactive lymphoid cells with eosinophils. Diagnosis of right cervical Bancroftian lymphadenopathy was made. The case was followed by excisional biopsy of the lymph node and hence was confirmed histopathologically. We report this case because cervical lymphadenopathy is a rare presentation of filariasis in children.
The aim of our study was to analysis a sample parents of tennis players in three different clubs situated in Tunisia and to incorporate the related inherent of the socio-economic factors of these issues and adopted the federal efforts to pout popularization of this sport. In our research we were incorporate for the achievement, the questionnaire as an investigative technique. The analysis focuses on a sample of 100 parents of players tennis clubs in three different situated in Greater Tunis. The questionnaire is, in fact, a set of ordered questions used to collect information’s from a population determined in tennis practice. The multiple choice question has a predetermined range of responses. Four variables were adopted; the socioeconomic level, age, level of studying, quality of population. The results indicate after comparing the responses of the experimental group: It should be noted that parents who take their children to practice courts have different social groups;
Multi-attribute analysis is a useful tool in many economical, managerial, constructional, etc., problems. There is usually some uncertainty involved in all multi-attribute model inputs. The objective of this work is to demonstrate how simulation can be used to reflect fuzzy inputs, which allows more complete interpretation of model results. A case study is used to demonstrate the concept of general contractor choice of on the basis of multiple attributes of efficiency with fuzzy inputs applying COPRAS method. The work has concluded that the COPRAS method is appropriate to use.
Bank managements are interested in determining the rate of liquidity based on a strategy for meeting this need. Lack of sufficient liquidity might impose heavy costs and even lead to bankruptcy. On the other hand, surplus liquidity will result in losing investment opportunities and reduction in productivity and profit ability of banks. In this research, efforts are taken to use the most affecting factors by investigation on important factors effective on the liquidity rate. The data used are chosen from 573 real values of banking operations. The variables are NEII 1 , RTGS 2 and clear transaction and the outcome of these variables is bank liquidity. In this research, two methods of ARIMA and multiple regressions are applied for predicting the future liquidity data and two mathematical models are introduced. The model introduced can predict liquidity rate based on two years data effectively. The results showed that the mean deviations between output of model
This paper presents an efficient VLSI architecture for a 4x4 64-QAM multiple-input–multiple-output (MIMO) detector. The augmentation is done by on demand expansion of intermediate nodes of the tree rather than exhaustively, along with pipelined distributed sorters. The proposed architecture has a stable critical path independent of constellation size, scalable to higher number of antennas with efficient distributed sorters. Further, modification will be carried out with the faster multiplication unit to make it scalable to higher number of antennas.
