Abstract

Electrical engineering students should understand the relationship between the time domain and the frequency domain. Many students learn to apply analysis techniques in the respective domains without understanding the relationship between the domains. To address this and other challenges to learning, we have changed the content and format of several introductory courses so that more abstract concepts are first introduced earlier in the program in a practical context. This paper describes our new approach to introduce the relationship between the time domain and the frequency domain to students as they are just being introduced to circuits.
