epq abstract example
There is no actual real definitive answer; for example, some people may choose to exclude an introduction and include an executive summary instead. The important thing is to check with whoever is marking it! However, if nothing is provided, the following is what I would generally recommend:
1. Abstract / 2. Introduction / 3. Methodology / 4. Results / 5. Discussion / 6. Further work / 7. Conclusion / 8. Appendix
A series of diary entries following my EPQ journey
Today I have decided to concentrate on writing the abstract of my project. I decided to leave this until I have written the majority of my essay as I was not sure of the direction my project would end in, but as I now have a clear view of where my project is going in terms of the conclusion I would end up with, I think it is now the right time. I have looked at other examples of abstracts as I wasn’t too sure on what an abstract actually was, nor its purpose or what it consists of. However, I think I can now write one confidently which will present the clear direction of my project. I may also continue to work on my PowerPoint as I will be presenting this soon.
In this study we consider the use of neural networks for system identification. No a priori information is assumed about the system model. Rather it is assumed that the system has several modes of behavior and that a sequence of input-output pairs, while the system is in each mode, is available. Using the input-output information, a neural network is designed with the goal of recognizing each of the modes. The design is tested by using the input-output sequence of an unknown variable system, whose characteristics transition between those of the five prototypes. The identification procedure operates on-line. The ability to identify and track the transitions of the unknown system is explored.
