Polar And Cartesian Coordinates
Pupils engage in a lesson that is about the study of Cartesian and Polar Coordinates. They play a game of Battleship to create the context for the lesson. The examples in the lesson can be used as a guide for the students or the teacher.

Exploiting the Connection to Cartesian Coordinates
Multiplication in polar form is nice and neat—that is not the case for coordinate representation. Multiplication by a complex number results in a dilation and a rotation in the plane. The formulas to show the dilation and rotation are...

Plots of Polar Coordinates: Submarine Sonar
Find the location of enemy submarines with a sonar display that doubles as a polar coordinate system. Pupils find polar coordinates that would be the same location of plotted submarines. They then determine multiple polar coordinates...

Introduction to Polar Coordinates - Concept
Learning polar coordinates does not require visiting the North Pole, though explaining igloos is much easier using polar coordinates. The lesson begins with a video explaining how to find coordinates on a spherical plane and how to...
