We have spent some time learning how to graph circles, limacons, rose curves, and lemniscates on the polar coordinate plane. The material you see below is borrowed heavily from Yosh’s Graphing Polar Equations part 1, part 2, and part 3. I have included a link to the Word document instead of a pdf of the file in case you would like to modify the document to match her examples. A 3-page work sheet follows the notes sheet for practice and review of converting equations between polar and rectangular form.
