This sequencing activity will provide your students with an engaging opportunity to simplify expressions involving operations with complex numbers. More specifically, students will practice adding, subtracting, and multiplying complex numbers.
To complete the activity, students will start by simplifying the expression on their student worksheet. If the simplification is done correctly, their answer will be at the top of a card on the next page. Students cut the card with the correct answer on it out and paste it into the next available spot on their worksheet (scissors and glue required) before simplifying the expression on this new card and continuing on with the activity. Students are finished when they have pasted all cards onto their worksheet in the appropriate order.
This no-prep resource includes directions, a template, cards for students to paste in sequential order, teacher notes, and an answer key. Please see the preview and thumbnails to determine if this activity is at the appropriate level of rigor for your students.
