Graphing Polar Coordinates
The following applet demonstrates the graph of a function in both polar and rectangular coordinates. In rectangular coordinates is the displacement (signed distance) from the -axis and determines the height (distance from the -axis) of the graph. In polar coordinates: is the distance from the origin (or pole) and is the direction (angle from positive -axis) is "shot off" from. Think of polar coordinates as radar!
