3 We are going to look at a new coordinate system called the polar coordinate system. You are familiar with plotting with a rectangular coordinate system.
4 (r, ) The center of the graph is called the pole. Angles are measured from the positive x axis.Points are represented by a radius and an angleradiusangle(r, )To plot the pointFirst find the angleThen move out along the terminal side 5
5 A negative angle would be measured clockwise like usual. To plot a point with a negative radius, find the terminal side of the angle but then measure from the pole in the negative direction of the terminal side.
6 Let's plot the following points: Notice unlike in the rectangular coordinate system, there are many ways to list the same point.
7 Let's take a point in the rectangular coordinate system and convert it to the polar coordinate system.(3, 4)Based on the trig you know can you see how to find r and ?r43r = 5We'll find in radians(5, 0.93)polar coordinates are:
8 Let's generalize this to find formulas for converting from rectangular to polar coordinates. (x, y)ryxYou need to consider the quadrant inwhich P lies in order to find the value of .
9 Now let's go the other way, from polar to rectangular coordinates. Based on the trig you know can you see how to find x and y?4yxrectangular coordinates are:

12 MAT 205 SPRING 2009To find the rectangular coordinates for a point given its polar coordinates, we can use the trig functions.Example
14 MAT 205 SPRING 2009Likewise, we can find the polar coordinates if we are given the rectangular coordinates using the trig functions. Think about the Pythagorean Theorem.Example:Find the polar coordinates (r, θ) for the point for which the rectangular coordinates are (5, 4). Express r and θ (in radians) to three sig digits.(5, 4)
15 Conversion from Rectangular Coordinates to Polar Coordinates If P is a point with rectangular coordinates (x, y), the polar coordinates(r, ) of P are given byPYou need to consider the quadrant inwhich P lies in order to find the value of .

19 Here each r unit is 1/2 and we went out 3 and did all angles. Convert the rectangular coordinate system equation to a polar coordinate system equation.Here each r unit is 1/2 and we went out 3 and did all angles.r must be 3 but there is no restriction on so consider all values.Before we do the conversion let's look at the graph.
20 substitute in for x and y Convert the rectangular coordinate system equation to a polar coordinate system equation.What are the polar conversions we found for x and y?substitute in for x and yWe wouldn't recognize what this equation looked like in polar coordinates but looking at the rectangular equation we'd know it was a parabola.

24 a graph to describe loops and curves? Background Polar CoordinatesHow do we graph or usea graph to describe loopsand curves?BackgroundThe use of polar coordinates allows forthe analysis of families of curves difficultto handle through rectangular coordinates (x,y). If a curve is arectangular coordinate graph of a function, it cannot have anyloops since, for a given value there can be at most onecorresponding value. However, using polar coordinates,curves with loops can appear as graphs of functions.
26 Polar Coordinates (Sect 21.10) A point P in the polar coordinate system is represented by an ordered pairIf , then r is the distance of the point from the pole. is an angle (in degrees or radians) formed by the polar axis and a ray from the pole through the point.
33 Using polar coordinates, the same point can be described by many different representations. Which of the following do(does) not describe the point (8,60°) ?(8,−60°) (8,-300°) (8,420°) (-8,-120°)Using polar coordinates, write 3 morerepresentations of the point (5,150°)
34 Graphing in polar coordinates Hit the MODE key.Arrow down to where it says Func(short for "function" which is a bit misleading since they are all functions).Now, use the right arrow to choose Pol.Hit ENTER.(*It's easy to forget this step, but it's crucial: until you hit ENTER you have not actually selected Pol, even though it looks like you have!)The calculator is now in polar coordinates mode. To see what that means, try this.Hit the Y= key. Note that, instead of Y1=, Y2=, and so on, you now have r1= and so on.In the r1= slot, type 5-5sin(Now hit the familiar X,T,q,n key, and you get an unfamiliar result. In polar coordinates mode, this key gives you a ϴ instead of an X.Finally, close off the parentheses and hit GRAPH.If you did everything right, you just asked the calculator to graph the polar equation r=5-5sin(ϴ). The result looks a bit like a valentine.The WINDOW options are a little different in this mode too. You can still specify X and Y ranges, which define the viewing screen. But you can also specify the ϴvalues that the calculator begins and ends with; for instance, you may limit the graph to 0< ϴ <π/2. This would not change the viewing window, but it would only draw part of the graph.
37 Definitions of Trigonometric Functions of Any Angle Definitions of Trig Functions of Any Angle(Sect 8.1)Definitions of Trigonometric Functions of Any AngleLet be an angle in standard position with (x, y) a point on the terminal side of andyx(x, y)r
38 The Signs of the Trig Functions Since the radius is always positive (r > 0), the signs of the trig functions are dependent upon the signs of x and y. Therefore, we can determine the sign of the functions by knowing the quadrant in which the terminal side of the angle lies.
40 A C T S Where each trig function is POSITIVE: “All Students Take Calculus”ACTSTranslation:A = All 3 functions are positive in Quad 1S= Sine function is positive in Quad 2T= Tangent function is positive in Quad 3C= Cosine function is positive in Quad 4*In Quad 2, sine is positive, but cosine and tangent are negative; in Quad 3, tangent is positive, but sine and cosine are negative; in Quad 4, cosine is positive but sine and tangent are negative.**Reciprocal functions have the same sign. So cosecant is positive wherever sine is positive, secant is positive wherever cosine is positive, and cotangent is positive wherever tangent is positive.
41 Example Determine if the following functions are positive or negative: sin 210°cos 320°cot (-135°)csc 500°tan 315°
42 ExamplesFor the given values, determine the quadrant(s) in which the terminal side of θ lies.
43 ExamplesDetermine the quadrant in which the terminal side of θ lies, subject to both given conditions.
44 ExamplesFind the exact value of the six trigonometric functions of θ if the terminal side of θ passes through point (3, -5).
45 Reference Angles (Sect 8.2) The values of the trig functions for non-acute angles (Quads II, III, IV) can be found using the values of the corresponding reference angles.Definition of Reference AngleLet be an angle in standard position. Its reference angle is the acute angle formed by the terminal side of and the horizontal axis.
46 Example Find the reference angle for Solution y MAT 205 SPRING 2009ExampleFind the reference angle forSolutionyxBy sketching in standard position, we see that it is a 3rd quadrant angle. To find , you would subtract 180° from 225 °.
47 So what’s so great about reference angles? Well…to find the value of the trig function of any non-acute angle, we just need to find the trig function of the reference angle and then determine whether it is positive or negative, depending upon the quadrant in which the angle lies.For example,In Quad 3, sin is negative45° is the ref angle
48 ExampleGive the exact value of the trig function (without using a calculator).
49 Examples (Text p 239 #6 & 8)Express the given trigonometric function in terms of the same function of a positive acute angle.
50 Now, of course you can simply use the calculator to find the value of the trig function of any angle and it will correctly return the answer with the correct sign.Remember:Make sure the Mode setting is set to the correct form of the angle: Radian or DegreeTo find the trig functions of the reciprocal functions (csc, sec, and cot), use the button or enter [original function] .
51 Evaluate . Round appropriately. ExampleEvaluate Round appropriately.Set Mode to DegreeEnter: OR
52 HOWEVER, it is very important to know how to use the reference angle when we are using the inverse trig functions on the calculator to find the angle because the calculator may not directly give you the angle you want.r-5yx(-12, -5)-12Example: Find the value of to the nearest 0.01°
57 Trig functions of Quadrantal Angles To find the sine, cosine, tangent, etc. of angles whose terminal side falls on one of the axes , we will use the circle.(1, 0)(-1, 0)(0, -1)0(0, 1)Unit Circle:Center (0, 0)radius = 1x2 + y2 = 1
58 Now using the definitions of the trig functions with r = 1, we have:

62 Radian Measure (Sect 8.3) Definition of Radian: A second way to measure angles is in radians.Definition of Radian:One radian is the measure of a central angle that intercepts arc s equal in length to the radius r of the circle.In general, for in radians,
