Activity Description Activity Guide

Students will investigate polar coordinates using the interactive website

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:

Below is a sample screen shot of the ExploreMath Activity.
