Lesson Plan: Exponential Form of a Complex Number Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to convert a complex number from the algebraic to the exponential form (Euler’s form) and vice versa.

Objectives

Students will be able to

  • convert complex numbers between exponential and Cartesian (algebraic/rectangular) forms,
  • convert complex numbers between exponential form and polar form,
  • perform operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) on complex numbers in exponential form,
  • use the properties of complex numbers in exponential form to solve problems.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

  • Argand diagrams,
  • Cartesian and polar forms of complex numbers,
  • performing operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) on complex numbers in Cartesian and polar forms,
  • the properties of complex numbers and complex conjugates,
  • squaring complex numbers in algebraic form.

Exclusions

Students will not cover

  • complex number calculations involving only algebraic and/or polar form,
  • de Moivre’s theorem.
