In this activity, students will simplify expressions with complex numbers. This ladder activity is a great alternative to a worksheet. Students will cut the problems apart along the lines and work the card labeled "Start" and find their answer on the top of another card. They tape their cards together until a chain is formed.
There are 11 problems. All of the problems use i; none of the problems require simplifying radicals. Students will add, subtract, multiply, and divide using complex numbers. Three of the problems require rationalizing the denominator. Make sure these problems are appropriate for your students - download the preview and look at the thumbnails to see problem types.
This activity can be completed individually or in pairs. An answer key and instructions are provided.
