91577 Apply the algebra of complex numbers in solving problems 5 credits external.

Apply the algebra of complex numbers in solving problems involves:

• selecting and using methods

• demonstrating knowledge of concepts and terms

• communicating using appropriate representations.

Relational thinking involves one or more of:

• selecting and carrying out a logical sequence of steps

• connecting different concepts or representation

• forming and using a model;

and also relating findings to a context, or communicating thinking using appropriate

mathematical statements.

Extended abstract thinking involves one or more of:

• devising a strategy to investigate or solve a problem

• identifying relevant concepts in context

• developing a chain of logical reasoning, or proof

• forming a generalisation;

and also using correct mathematical statements, or communicating mathematical

insight.

The year plan is as follows:

- Trigonometry - internal assessment 91575 4cr
- Differentiation - external assessment 91578 6cr
- Integration - external assessment 91579 6cr
- Complex Numbers - external assessment 91577 5cr

I suggest all students revise basic algebra as it is the language we will be using in this course to learn more complex ideas.

Maybe create a khanacademy login and practise - you can join the rest of the class on there with this code **5E2XNC**

These are the two key areas to be well practised at.
