This worksheet is designed to introduce students to the polar coordinate system.
I start out class with a 15-minute "mini-lesson," going through a few of the examples with them, to give my students some basic examples of what today's lesson will be about. Once the mini-lesson is over, I have them get to work within their groups on this worksheet, and I circulate to make sure they are getting the purpose of the questions.
The polar graphs assume that students have access to a TI graphing calculator.
The file includes spiral review problems.
This worksheet is intended to be written on directly.
Please download the pdf preview file first, so you can see exactly what's included; the product file is a word document, which you may personalize for your students.
