This packet has students explore a variety of polar graphs. It is broken up into 6 sections--circles, cardiods, limacons, roses, lemniscates, and logarithmic spirals. Students are presented with a general form for the equation of each type of graph and then asked to plot points in order to sketch a
This 22 page document contains a slides presentation with equations and graphs, guided notes, classwork, and an answer key! No prep time needed! Students will be challenged to graph equations, classify them, and explain what happens when parameters are changed. * Slides presentation* Guided notes* C
Included in this bundle are all of the matching activities that I have made (thus far) for the Polar unit. Help your class learn with some hands on activities during this unit when they explore graphing further!
I recommend using the individual products in the following order (please see individual
When teaching graphing polar equations, I recommend breaking it up based upon type of graph related. One of the more difficult topics for students is roses, specifically using symmetry to graph coordinates so they don't need to make a table for all values. After teaching this topic, the matching act
One of the topics learned in the Polar unit is converting between polar and rectangular equations. This can help firm up the concept of graphing and can be a great way to introduce graphing!
Included are 12 graphs and equations (polar and rectangular) of lines and circles that vary ever so slightly
These notes contain examples of the various types of polar equations; each example has a polar coordinate plane next to it on which the graph of the polar equation can be sketched. The notes were used in an Honors Pre-Calculus course.
When teaching graphing polar equations, I recommend breaking it up based upon type of graph related. The first graph that I recommend teaching / learning are polar "circles." After teaching this topic, the matching activity would be a great practice activity to complete as a group or a class.
This is a 5-question quiz was used in an Honors Pre-Calculus course. The questions are:1. Sketch a graph of the point with the given polar coordinates and name 2 other polar coordinates with the given restrictions that describe the same point.2. Convert the given polar coordinates to rectangular
- Symmetry tests for polar graphs
- Graphing Polar Equations by Point-Plotting
- Check for symmetry and then graph the polar equation
- Rose Curves
- Lemniscate curves
- Spiral of Archimedes
When teaching graphing polar equations, I recommend breaking it up based upon type of graph related. Limacons can be difficult for some students when thinking about how the "a" and "b" impact the shape of the graph. After teaching this topic, the matching activity would be a great practice activity
Treasure hunt activity for students to practice graphing 4 polar equations on their treasure maps (4 equations to post on your walls) (1 cardioid, 1 rose curve, and 2 circles), as well as three (the three clues to post on classroom walls) cartesian coordinate to polar coordinate point conversions.
This worksheet teaches how to convert polar equations of lines and circles to rectangular form and graph. There is a review of some identities and completing the square and a few lists of important formulas. Key included.
This packet can be used to introduce the graphs of polar equations. Students use a calculator to determine the table of values entries and plot those polar coordinates on the grid provided. Using a graphing calculator, students enter the equations and then sketch other types of polar graphs.
Polar and Parametric Equations (PreCalculus Curriculum - Unit 7) - DISTANCE LEARNINGUPDATE: This unit now contains a Google document with: (1) Links to instructional videos. Videos are created by fellow teachers for their students using the guided notes from the unit. Please watch through first
Students will practice classifying and graphing classic polar curves with this sort and graph activity. Types of polar curves include circles, limaçoms (looped, cardioid, dimpled, and convex), roses (3-petal and 4-petal), lemniscates, and spirals. There are 9 total polar equations that students must
