The Complex Number System

The Complex Number System

These notes and examples cover the US Common Core N-CN standards for complex numbers. The student booklet has spaces to fill in the solutions to the examples. The separate teacher booklet has detailed worked solutions. The student booklet is provided in both docx and pdf forms so that it can be edited to suit the needs of your class.

Eulers identity fun year 10 lesson

Eulers identity fun year 10 lesson

A fun end of term lesson I used with my top set year 10s (after they bugged me to teach them about complex numbers for eons). I wouldn’t necessarily suggest this for anyone other than very capable, extremely engaged mathematicians…

Set Theory PowerPoint and Handouts

Set Theory PowerPoint and Handouts

An extensive introduction to Set Theory, generally aimed at Computer Science A Level students, A Level Mathematicians or first year Undergraduate students in either Computer Science or Mathematics. It is intended to cover two lessons, extra examples and discussion may be required if aiming at a lower ability. Includes: A simple starter to encourage discussion on how to categorise numbers, as well as how many there may be e.g. how many natural numbers are there? A handout featuring all definitions given in the PowerPoint A PowerPoint covering set notation, intersections, unions, set comprehension and set compression. More resources can be added upon request. Please do give feedback/suggestions!

40 slide Powerpoint Advanced Higher Maths Complex Numbers Argand Diagrams Worked Solutions

40 slide Powerpoint Advanced Higher Maths Complex Numbers Argand Diagrams Worked Solutions

40 slide Powerpoint for Advanced Higher Maths Unit 2: Complex Numbers. There is a brief revision of the basics of Complex numbers followed by a series of questions. The 24 questions (many of them multi-part) require the construction of Argand Diagrams, use of the quadratic formula, polynomial long division, and simultaneous equations. There are fully worked solutions (including diagrams) for complex number topics relating to: Equating Real and Imaginary Parts; Finding square, cube, fourth, fifth and sixth roots of complex numbers (including unity) and plotting them on an Argand diagram; Verifying and finding roots of complex number polynomials; Expanding and simplifying complex numbers using the Binomial Theorem and De Moivre’s Theorem; Interpreting geometrically loci in the complex plane; Conversions between polar and rectangular forms; Complex Conjugates; Exponential Form; Trigonometric identities, substitutions and simplification. The questions are grouped in approximate order of difficulty and to match the usual order of progress through this topic. *Animated workings come up line by line on mouse clicks.*

Euler's prime number Generator and 163

Euler's prime number Generator and 163

Presentation showing the solution of Euler's quadratic formula for generating primes and noting its irrational imaginary part of its complex solutions. When Euler's number, e is then taken to the power of pi*square root of 163 one mysteriously ends up with almost an integer-shown in wolfram. Link then to numberphile video that takes a different broader angle.

Mathematical Ambiguity & topic relationships

Mathematical Ambiguity & topic relationships

A presentation exploring ambiguity in the operations and objects of Maths and a set of concept maps that connect various topics of GCSE and IB/A level syllabuses. Quadratic, Log, Trigonometric and Functions are mapped in detail. Useful crossover introductory material that can provide some meaning and context in helping to make some connections between otherwise disparate fields. The presentation develops five areas in which the terms and processes of mathematics are inherently ambiguous: from the irrationals and infinity, the variable as a receptacle, the filling of the number line, forming operations with numbers to the notion of equality and sameness. That is from a number being both a noun (a fractional object) and a verb (process of adding a convergent series of rationals). That algebraic formulations using a variable x, allow for x in one sense to have any value ( before the equation is solved) to a specific value when it has been solved. As five separate chapters each one can serve as nonstandard provocative discussion/starter/plenary material .
