>What type of jobs use polar coordinates and imaginary numbers? Hi Cale, The part of your question about imaginary numbers brought to mind a question another teacher asked us about the use of complex numbers in engineering and in physics. A friend of mine, a mathematician at the University of California, Davis, who does research in the complex numbers, gave us a response which, I believe, would be of interest to you. It can be found at: http://mathforum.org/t2t/thread.taco?thread=3886 Cheers! -Jeanne, for the T2T service
