About This Webinar

Helpee: Michael Pershan (@mpershan)

Why is i^2 = -1? Most approaches for providing kids with an answer for this haven't satisfied me, so I set out to redesign my Complex Numbers unit. After testing it out with two classes, some flaws became evident, but I also had some real successes. In this session I'd like to share with you why I find most approaches to Complex Numbers unsatisfying, what I tried, how it failed, and I'll spend a lot of the session asking you for ideas on how to improve this unit.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Mar 12: Lesson Bonfire: Help me improve my complex numbers unit
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
