The Fundamental Theorem of Algebra; A Visual Approach

The Fundamental Theorem of Algebra says that for every nonconstant polynomial p(x) there is a complex number z such that p(z) = 0. In this talk I will present a method of visualizing functions on the complex plane, and use this method to illustrate several proofs of the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra. I will also discuss the history of the theorem and its proofs.
