Abstract

A gap between theory and practice in signals and systems courses is often reported at many universities as a key problem in recruiting signals and systems students. On the other hand, instructors often cite a lack of fundamental understanding in mathematics as an issue in this course. Students seem to be discontent with some of the abstraction of the signals and systems courses. In this work-in-progress paper, we describe a new pathways concept we introduced to address these problems by introducing in-depth discussions, several applications and hands-on exercises.
