|Activity: Cartesian Graphs and Polar Graphs|
|Go to:||http://www.keypress.com/.../CartesianPolarGraphs.zip (opens a new window)|
Students compare rectangular graphs and polar graphs for functions of the form y = a sin(bx) and r = a sin(b?). Students analyze how the period and amplitude of a Cartesian graph correlate to features of the corresponding polar graph. The link to the activity itself is to a zip file that contains both the activity in pdf format and the corresponding sketch.
This is a free sample activity from Exploring Precalculus with the Geometer's Sketchpad.
