imaginary numbers

I am teaching an Algebra II class to Juniors and Seniors. This class
contains mostly students who will go to a junior college, community
college or major in a non math field. We have a different class for
Juniors with better skills in math. My question concerns the learning of
imaginary and complex numbers. We have spent the first semester
reviewing linear equations, solving equations, and seeing the relationsip
between slope and real life examples (velcity, density, etc) Second
sememster we will look at quadratic equations. I question spending time
on imaginary and complex numbers. The students will have a difficult
time seeing the application. Any ideas.
