Further Maths Pure Content: Complex Numbers



This course is intended to provide content and teaching ideas for teachers who will be offering the Year 2 (A2) Further Maths Pure element for the first time, or those wishing to develop their practice. 

This two-session course will run over two afternoons;

Tuesday June 23 15:00 – 16:30
De Moivre’s Theorem: applications to trigonometry identities and summing series

Wednesday June 24 15:00 – 16:30
Roots of Complex Numbers: roots of unity, roots of complex numbers and applications to geometric problems

These sessions are part 1 of a two-part series. You can find information about part 2 here. You can apply for all sessions using a single booking form.


  • To examine the key points in each topic
  • To introduce teachers to new teaching ideas and resources

Who will benefit from attending?

This course is designed for those teaching the Edexcel specification. We welcome applications from colleagues teaching other exam boards but request that you check your board specification for content overlap. 

We will assume that delegates are familiar with the Complex Number content of AS Further Maths (complex conjugates, modulus-argument form, multiplying and dividing complex numbers in modulus-argument form).

Materials and Equipment

Delegates require a laptop / tablet device with a strong internet connection and a microphone. 

The sessions will take place on the Big Blue Button Platform. 

You will be provided with a resource booklet which you can print in advance and use during the sessions (this is not required).
