Some Enrichment Ideas for Complex Algebra in the College Prep Curriculum.
Mathews, Susann; Mathews, Kirk
Primus, v9 n3 p251-61 Sep 1999
Demonstrates examples, one of which is an extension of "guess and check," to include variables rather than numbers. The quadratic equation az2+bz+c=0, is solved by assuming a complex solution of the form z=x+iy. Explores the use of deMoivre's theorem in deriving trigonometric identities with other examples.
