What are your favorite videos or resources about imaginary numbers?  Oldest dd has been studying it in algebra.  And now 11yo ds is intrigued.

Imaginary Numbers Are Real on YT is good on the history and the purpose if that's the sort of thing you are looking for. It's a bit long, done 7 parts but it is interesting of your child/children are in to it enough.

Thanks!  We'll check it out.  They love Great Courses so they'll probably like this.

Thank you posting this.

 

The timing is perfect. We just hit imaginary numbers in AoPS Intro to Algebra.

We watched the first couple of videos yesterday and really liked them. I hope to watch the rest today. Thank you!
