    It is shown that a surprising number of traditional topics, such as the Rayleigh resolution criterion, spatial filtering, bandlimited signals, the sampling theorem, phase contrast microscopy, and white light holography, can be explained using simple interference theory. These basic results are then easily extended to the N-source case to introduce diffraction theory, and facilitate the teaching of the elements of modern optics to junior and senior-level students.
