Polar Coordinates and Equations--More than Pretty Pictures!

Great use for cardioid graphs!
Since our study of polar graphs and coordinates was abbreviated (and we had Thanksgiving in between) I wanted to provide a few resources for you to help with your test review, so here you go:

Written resources:
Video/Interactive Resources (most require Java):
  • Video tutorial of basics of polar coordinates and graphs
  • Great interactive site to explain polar
  • Interactive sites to create polar graphs (like our "web assignment") - found here and here 
  • And don't forget my new favorite website for a graphing calculator: Desmos!

If you find another resource that might help a classmate, please list it in the comments below.
