Polar Coordinates
This lesson is designed to introduce students to graphing functions in polar coordinates.

Calculus: Parametric Equations and Polar Coordinates
These lessons on polar coordinates help students to develop a basic understanding of the polar coordinate system and to locate points given in polar form; includes: objectives, vocabulary, and about the lesson.

Ellipses and Kepler's First Law
In this lesson the ellipse is studies in polar coordinates (r,f), with the function cos(f).

Graphing Conic Sections Using Polar Equations Video Part 1
This video explains the form of a polar equation that represents a conic section. It also provides an example of how to graph a parabola in polar form. (Total Running Time: 9:47) NOTE: This site includes a discussion board (message board, forum, etc.)
