Ch 29: Polar Coordinates & Parameterizations: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Polar Coordinates & Parameterizations chapter of this High School Trigonometry Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about polar coordinates and parameterizations. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long, and they teach all of the steps for working with polar coordinates and solving parametric equations required in a typical high school trigonometry course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other high school trigonometry work.
  • Identify the polar coordinates and parameterizations concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our High School Trigonometry Tutoring Solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about polar coordinates and parameterizations to earn better grades. This resource can help students, including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding polar and rectangular coordinates, parametric equations, De Moivre's theorem or any other polar coordinates and parameterizations topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their math learning
  • Prefer learning math visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their polar coordinates and parameterizations unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in high school trigonometry
  • Don't have access to their math teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning about polar coordinates and parameterizations simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live trigonometry tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about polar coordinates and parameterizations on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and re-watch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

Learning objectives:

  • Change a Cartesian coordinate point into a polar coordinate point.
  • Learn the formulas that transform complex numbers to polar form from rectangular form.
  • Discover how to evaluate parametric equations.
  • Transform parametric forms to rectangular forms.
  • Demonstrate the process for graphing a parametric equation.
  • Learn about real-world applications for parametric equations.
  • Differentiate between conic sections, polar form equations and parametric form equations.
