These are 14 practice problems on finding slopes and tangent lines in polar coordinates. Problems A1- A8 require students find the slope of the tangent line to a polar curve at a given point. Problems B1-B4 require students determine the equation of the tangent line for a polar curve at a given point. Problems C1-C2 require students find the polar points of horizontal and vertical tangency.
I hope that the practice worksheets give your students enough room to show their work.
