Graphical Representation of Complex Solutions of the Quadratic Equation in the "xy" Plane
McDonald, Todd
AMATYC Review, v27 n2 p15-17 Spr 2006
This paper presents a visual representation of complex solutions of quadratic equations in the xy plane. Rather than moving to the complex plane, students are able to experience a geometric interpretation of the solutions in the xy plane. I am also working on these types of representations with higher order polynomials with some success.
