Bar graphs are good for plotting data that spans a length of time (for example, for comparing achievement between the beginning and the end of the year) or they can be used for comparing different items in a related category (for example, achievement results for different classes).
Data that has relevance for decision-making is accumulating at an incredible rate due to a host of technological advances. Electronic data capture has become inexpensive and ubiquitous as a by-product of innovations such as the Internet, e-commerce, electronic banking, point-of-sale devices, bar-code readers, and electronic patient records. Data mining is a rapidly growing field that is concerned with developing techniques to assist decision-makers to make intelligent use of these repositories. The field of data mining has evolved from the disciplines of statistics and artificial intelligence.
This course will combine practical exploration of data mining techniques with a exploration of algorithms, including their limitations. Students taking this module should have an elementary understanding of probability concepts and some experience of programming.

'Intangibles' now make up about 80% of the value of many businesses. For small and medium sized businesses that percentage may be higher. These 'intangibles' include goodwill, customer connections and the like, but mainly they consist of intellectual property rights Â¿ a portfolio of trade marks or patents, the copyright in a suite of computer programs, a catalogue of musical recordings. These are all business 'assets' and how they are created, acquired, improved and used is the focus of this module.
The module is very practically focussed, examining how technology based and creative businesses and other organisations such as universities and research centres 'commercialise' or 'monetise' these valuable assets by licensing or franchising their IP or by engaging in other strategic commercial arrangements. It includes an examination of how businesses are bought and sold for their IP.
The module introduces students to working precedents - draft technology licences, M & A transactional agreements and similar working documents - to illustrate how lawyers in practice deal with these commercial arrangements. The module is of great potential value to students who are likely to find themselves working in a commercial environment either in private practice or as an in house attorney.

This module explores theoretical, empirical and policy dimensions of patterns and processes of migration and mobilities in a global context and consciously across the global North/global South 'divide' from a scalar, relational and networked perspective. Although the focus will be on the nature and dynamics of contemporary movement of people, the module will also incorporate an analysis of the movement of information, goods and capital as framed within the `new mobilities paradigmÂ¿. Theoretically, the module analyses the key framings of contemporary migration in relation to transnationalism, diaspora and post-national citizenship. In turn, it will interrogate the nature and links between transnationalism, multiculturalism and/or integration; the migration-development nexus; the politics of irregularity and 'illegality'; the relationships between the emergence of global cities and a migrant division of labour; the nature of global gendered mobilities and power and mobility as well as the interrelations between conflict, violence and mobility.

Flood risk is increasing at the same time as our rising demand for water. And European legislation, now transposed into UK law, also requires our rivers to achieve good ecological status. There is growing recognition by environmental policy makers and managers that floods, low flows and water quality need to be managed in an integrated way if sustainable solutions are to be found. This module builds on the knowledge of catchment-scale processes gained from GEG5203 Earth System Cycles and applies this knowledge to the practical management of the water environment. Students will gain an understanding of: the issues facing managers of water resources and the water environment; the legislative and policy drivers for management; and the latest approaches being implemented to achieve sustainable and integrated management in the catchment context.
