- Without using Graphing Calculator, sketch the graph of . Check yourselves after everyone can construct the sketch on his or her own.

- After
sketching the graph, consider root difficulties in understanding (i.e.,
making and interpreting) graphs in polar coordinates. Prepare a set of
bullet points regarding:
- What is difficult about understanding them?
- What
does this suggest about teaching functions graphed in polar coordinates?
- What
implications does this have for other areas in the secondary math
curriculum?
