Is the tribunal system corrupt?
Like understanding emost explanations fell into one of two categories: Just wait until college.
Gee, what a great way to encourage math in kids! Seeing complex numbers as an upgrade to our number systemjust like zero, decimals and negatives were.
Using visual diagramsnot just text, to understand the idea. And our secret weapon: But what about ?
What, exactly, does that mean? How can you take 4 cows from 3? How could you have less than nothing? Try asking your teacher whether negatives corrupt the very foundations of math.
We invented a theoretical number that had useful properties. It was a useful fiction.
Math became easier, more elegant. Enter Imaginary Numbers Imaginary numbers have a similar story. We can solve equations like this all day long: The answers are 3 and But suppose some wiseguy puts in a teensy, tiny minus sign: This question makes most people cringe the first time they see it.
You want the square root of a number less than zero? Historically, there were real questions to answer, but I like to imagine a wiseguy. It seems crazy, just like negatives, zero, and irrationals non-repeating numbers must have seemed crazy at first.
In the same spirit of assuming -1. That is, you multiply i by itself to get Well, first we get a headache. New relationships emerge that we can describe with ease. But as the negatives showed us, strange concepts can still be useful. And if we think about it more, we could rotate twice in the other direction clockwise to turn 1 into If we multiply by -i twice, the first multiplication would turn 1 into -i, and the second turns -i into This is pretty cool.Eddie Murphy's Trading Places is one of my favorite movies of all time.
However, I have always felt a twinge of guilt when I watched the movie with .

Thanks for the comment, though I think this works for adults too:). I’ve seen far too many people approach math from the plug-and-chug angle, I want to encourage a more intuitive approach, especially when teaching kids.
