Interactive video lesson plan for: Vihart's Song - "No Real Solution"

Activity overview:

This is dedicated to Vihart - she may be the only person who can solve this.


LYRICS:
Vihart, Vihart,
You won, my heart
With a spirally spiralling video
And now I@m writing this to let you know that
I can't, I can't
Solve this inequality
I was wondering if you would kindly
Please help me?

Vihart, Vihart,
Your videos are works of art,
The one on wau plus the one on tau
Gives me the courage to ask this now
For I shan't, I shan't,
Sleep till I've seen proof
Don't obscure what you say at risk of getting further from the truth

I imagine that the "i" must be
One of the roots of minus one, but I can't see
How the characters proceeding it
Are, mathematically speaking, supposed to fit
Vihart is it true
Is "i" less than 3u?

Less than 3, less than 3
I see it all the time, what does it mean?
Calculators cannot help,
After all they're just machines
I'm troubled too, by the u
Is it meant to be a constant value?
The only possiblity
Is that u must be imaginary

I've worked out that the "i" must be
One of the roots of minus one, but still I can't see
I'm plotting it on an Argand Diagram
Still I'm struggling to udnerstand
Vihart is it true
Is "i" less than 3u?

I could accept that i must be
Forever apart from u, destined never to meet
Unless there's something I have missed
Some kind of clever mathematical trick
Vihart I know that you'll come through
The problem must not be above you
As by now you've realised that I...
