**Course materials:**

**Required Text:**

*Signals & Systems,* by A. Oppenheim, A. Willsky and S. H. Nawab, Prentice Hall, 1997 (2nd edition)

**Course objectives:**

This course introduces undergraduate students to discrete-time
signals and systems, which is the starting point for work on digital signal
processing. Students who complete this course should gain:

- an understanding of basic theory of discrete-time signals and systems, particularly linear time-invariant systems;
- an intuitive understanding of system properties and how to test for these properties;
- the ability to translate between different types of system descriptions, including input-output equations, Z transforms, and Fourier transforms;
- knowledge of the terminology used for describing discrete-time systems problems and their solutions;
- increased familiarity with MATLAB; and
- the ability to design and test simple discrete-time systems.

**Grading Policy**

*Class Assignments:* 10%

*Homework:* 15%

*Labs:* 15%

*Midterm:* 25% (5 May 14, in class)

*Final:* 35% (11 June 14, 8:30-10:20)
