Teaching AP Calculus: Finishing Unit 12 Parametric and Polar Modes!

AP Calculus BC finished Chapter 12 talking about Vector and Polar notation. We stressed the similarity of Polar and Parametric modes. So, once we figured out how to calculate slopes and arc lengths parametrically, we tried to do the same with polar graphs. We also talked about polar area! Next week is AP Review already! That was last week. This week was AP Review. I loved Sean Bird's reference sheet:

AP Calculus BC 12-04: Polar Arc Length and Area

Well, that's all folks!
