What have we accomplished?
Time and frequency analysis
Signal representation using basic signals (unit-step, impulse, ramp, exponentials)
Connect signals and systems
Develop theory that approximates behavior of most systems
Where do we go from here?
Signal classification
Symmetry, periodicity, energy/power for continuous-time signals
