This paper presents a tutorial on how to tackle convolution operations while learning the Signals and Systems Course. This paper suggested different ways of interpreting convolution operations for a single problem. The convolution operation is one of the most important operations used to derive the response of a system. For continuous-time signals and systems, this paper presented two methods of analyzing analytical solutions and three methods of analyzing graphical solutions. For discrete-time signals and systems, this paper presented four methods of analyzing the convolution sum solution. Based on an experiment applied on a group of 100+ undergraduate students, this paper suggested, among the methods used, which of these methods of evaluating convolution operation is suitable to make students understand. In the analysis of analog, optical, and digital signal processing, the convolution operation is important. The correlation operation is also crucial. Convolution and correlation are often taught in the time domain culture using only one-dimensional time signals. That doesnot show the influence of convolution and association between two signals very well. As we understand two-dimensional spatial signs, though,the convolution and correlation operations become even clearer.
