Dr. Michael Plante on convolutions, etc.






Our intrepid TA is Shulin Ye



Office Hours: TBD






Here is an old exam I prepared for a recent Signals and Systems course at UT Dallas. It should give you some idea about the format I use and the type of questions I ask. Note that we will cover at least part of Chapter 2 before I call for an exam, and that last year the first exam was held mid-October. The format is closed book, no notes, no calculator, but I will hand out these sheets of useful math facts.


The lecture on delta functions can be found at:
