## Reflection: Lesson Planning Roots of Complex Numbers - Section 2: Formula for Roots of complex numbers

At this point in the year I have a good feel of what rigor my students are able to comprehend. Each year is different and how I teach this section depends on the ability of my students. This is at the end of the year which also causes many issues such as student missing numerous days for state competitions.

When I have students that struggle with ideas I sometimes leave the proof of the nth root out of the curriculum it is a tough decision but sometimes time and schedules necessitate altering instruction.
