Advice for IB exams

Math is a religion. You must have faith in it.

Here we're going to play with something you wouldn't expect to find in math: faith. Is math an invention or a discovery?

Do these "rules" exist naturally, or were they deduced based on numerous numerical coincidences?

"Imaginary numbers"

Aren't all numbers imaginary? Why do we have numbers that don't exist, then use them to solve problems? The concept is strange at best. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, I'm referring to the term "i"

Strange, no?

Now, on to the really helpful stuff.
