Series Details

About

As imaginary as complex numbers might initially seem, they are extremely useful in advanced math and engineering courses and are well worth understanding. Join me to gain a solid grasp on complex numbers and to learn how to use them to solve problems and better manipulate trigonometry.
We'll be working through the Khan Academy unit here: https://www.khanacademy.org/math/precalculus/x9e81a4f98389efdf:complex
which you are free to look into in advance to see if you are interested in joining the series, or if you just want to get a head start.
Not only will we cover the fundamentals in this crash course, but I'll also teach you cool applications and tricks and provide support for any of your questions along the way. I'm excited to join you as you embark on learning the fascinating topic of complex numbers.

✋ ATTENDANCE POLICY

Only our sessions about new content are required—all catch-up sessions are optional. If you complete the unit test early and show it to me, then you are also free to end the series early!

About the Tutor

Hi, I'm Erik. I am here to help you with Math - whether that is understanding a challenging concept, preparing for an exam, or working through homework problems. I scored a 5 on the AP BC Calculus exam, and a 790 on the Math section of the SAT. When I am not learning, you might find me painting, birdwatching, biking, programming, reading, or working on solving some problem. I love learning about Math and Computer Science, and enjoy helping others learn these subjects as well.
