Instructor: Matt Sottile

Our primary means of interaction with the world around us is through visual and audible perception. If we want to measure, manipulate, and create visual and audio signals digitally, it is useful to understand the fundamentals of physical and digitized signals. Through both lectures and hands-on demonstrations, we will learn about the physical properties of sound, how sampling takes the physical to the digital, and how to represent and manipulate signals once we have them digitized.

Prerequisite: Comfort with the following mathematical topics: trigonometry, introductory calculus, algebra.
