Actually, the polar form is most used by computer programs to plot things since it simplifies the variables. Did you know there were polar forms of conics? There are many applications for the conics! Get a calculus text and look in the section that is taught for a third calculus course. You will find lots of ideas there! -Claudia, for the Teacher2Teacher service
