  1. Determine the effects of sampling a continuous-time signal and compute the power and energy of a continuous-time and/or discrete-time signal.
  2. Evaluate the expected continuous-time expression for a signal by using the spectrum information of the discretized signal.
  3. Compute the response of a LTI system by convolution and the response of a LTI system to a cosine signal excitation.
  4. Characterize a LTI system in terms of its frequency response.
  5. Compute the response of a LTI system by using FT properties and the Discrete Fourier Transform of a discrete time signal.
  6. Analyze the contents of a basic discrete time signal from its frequency information.
