Complex Number to Polar Form

In this tutorial the students will learn how to convert a complex number to its polar form equivalent in just 6 minutes!   Complex numbers are a combination of real and imaginary numbers in the form a+bi.  Polar form is the length/magnitude and angle of the vector.

The student will investigate and identify the characteristics of the graphs of polar equations, using graphing utilities. This will include classification of polar equations, the effects of changes in the parameters in polar equations, conversion of complex numbers from rectangular form to polar form and vice versa, and the intersection of the graphs of polar equations.
