Subject: Re: Polar Graphs

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!
