These worksheets will give your students practice in solving equations on the powers of i.

#### The imaginary unit i has a really cool property about it. When you successive raise the unit to higher powers it produces a repeating pattern. In this series of worksheets we will explore that trend and help students make sense of it. The activities on these sheets will provide practice for solving various algebraic expressions demonstrating the cyclic nature of the powers of i. Both simple and complex equations are presented for the student to solve. This set contains all introductory material, practice questions, reviews, longer exercise sheets, and quizzes.

Using the property of cyclic powers of i, these worksheets show how to simplify equations that have variables and multiple powers.
