I’d say more complex than complicated. The complexity is difficult to avoid, but complication is when we add unnecessary “stuff”. Math is filled with complexity and we often add complications through tricks, memorization and otherwise.
The hard part is determining what parts are important for both the teacher and student to understand vs what is more just for the teacher to help them plan and deliver an effective lesson?
