Lesson Plan: Conversion between Rectangular and Polar Equations Mathematics
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to convert equations from polar to rectangular form and vice versa.
Students will be able to
- convert equations from polar to Cartesian form and vice versa,
- recognize graphs of equations written in polar form by converting the equations to Cartesian form.
Students should already be familiar with
- polar coordinates.
Students will not cover
- the differentiation of polar curves.
