What if however a student is asked to convert the complex number -1-i into mod-arg form? If they just start to plug-and-chug they'll quickly end up with the result [itex]\theta=\pi/4[/itex] and all of a sudden they've changed the complex number into it's negative, 1+i.

How does one avoid this dilemma?
