Polar Investigation

In precalculus, kids started their investigation into polar curves using this fabulous applet that was giving me a lot of technical difficulties last week. And as they were working, I heard so many good discussions, and so many solid insights from kids who were able to understand why polar graphs took the form they do. It took a lot of time to figure out the problem with the applet, but today made it all worthwhile. They continue on Friday, and I hope their insights only grow!
