MA.1.0: Students are familiar with, and can apply, polar coordinates and vectors in the plane. In particular, they can translate between polar and rectangular coordinates and can interpret polar coordinates and vectors graphically.

Points in Polar Coordinates
Points in the Coordinate Plane - Activity A

MA.2.0: Students are adept at the arithmetic of complex numbers. They can use the trigonometric form of complex numbers and understand that a function of a complex variable can be viewed as a function of two real variables. They know the proof of DeMoivre's theorem.

Complex Numbers in Polar Form

MA.5.1: Students can take a quadratic equation in two variables; put it in standard form by completing the square and using rotations and translations, if necessary; determine what type of conic section the equation represents; and determine its geometric components (foci, asymptotes, and so forth).

Rotations, Reflections and Translations

MA.5.2: Students can take a geometric description of a conic section - for example, the locus of points whose sum of its distances from (1, 0) and (-1, 0) is 6 - and derive a quadratic equation representing it.

Ellipse - Activity A
Hyperbola - Activity A
Parabolas - Activity A

MA.6.0: Students find the roots and poles of a rational function and can graph the function and locate its asymptotes.

Rational Functions

MA.7.0: Students demonstrate an understanding of functions and equations defined parametrically and can graph them.
