Complex Numbers:
Denition: A complex number is a number of the form:
z = a + bi
where a, b are real numbers and i is a symbol with the property:
i2 = 1. You may treat i = 1
We can treat i as a variable in an algebraic expression and all algebraic rules ar
Sequences:
Denition: A sequence is a function whose domain is the set of natural numbers
or a subset of the natural numbers. We usually use the symbol an to represent a
sequence, where n is a natural number and an is the value of the function on n.

f (x) = |x|
If we know the graph of a basic function f (x), we can draw the graph of more
complicated functions, like 2f (x

Informal denition of a function:
A function between two sets is a rule that assigns to each member
in the rst set (called the domain) one and only one member in the
second set (called the range).
Intuitively, a function is a machine (or an opera
