Warm up! Polar Coordinates by M. Habib
- Mohamed Habib, Tim Brzezinski, Dan Mosher
The applet below illustrates how to plot points whose coordinates are written in POLAR FORM. You can adjust the values of r and theta by using the sliders or the input boxes. (This grapher will only accept theta values ranging from -2pi to 2pi). Slide the black slider to illustrate how polar coordinates are plotted. Interact with this applet for a few minutes, then answer the questions that follow.
