Points in the Polar
Plane


 
Students will investigate polar coordinates using the interactive website ExploreMath.com. Mathematics: Polar coordinates, graphing, bearings, and trigonometric functions. Mathematics Thinking: Students will convert coordinates of points between coordinate systems, make predictions about outcomes, and justify conjectures. Technology: Students will use the “Points in Polar Coordinates” Activity developed by ExploreMath located at: http://www.exploremath.com/activities/Activity_page.cfm?ActivityID=11 Below is a sample screen shot of the ExploreMath Activity.
