Each grid you try, will relate x and y.
Rectangular is that graph.
The system is Cartesian,
It’s the high school epitaph.
No other grids considered, they can be denied.
Is there nothing else? What will you decide?

Don’t need to know, don’t need to see,
Won’t be tested, but math means more, surely!
It’s not for grades, there’s no concern...
Well, why not learn...

Polar plot, polar plot!
Co-ordinate angle view.
Polar plot, polar plot!
Points the way with distance too!
I don’t care, math can be for play,
r with theta’s fun.
The x kinda bothered me anyway.

If r is now our distance, hypotenuse we find.
And the theta’s an inverse tan, our slope we’ve reassigned.
To convert back, it’s trig we’ll do, with r, cos theta, and sine too,
But there’s no need, as by degree...  You’ll see--!

Polar plot, polar plot!
Radians can be used as well,
Polar plot, polar plot!
This circle’s magic spell!
Functions curl, on this display,
r with theta’s fun!

It’s power can be seen
 for shapes we’ve not applied,
Cardioids, Spirals too
 as Archimedes once described,
And don’t stop searching
 for the ways these points are new!
Square root of minus one?
Yeah, we can graph that too!

Polar plot, polar plot!
No, you won’t find it on your test.
Polar plot, polar plot!
Please give your marks a rest.
Here’s a grid,
Shown in a new waaaay!
r with theta’s fuuuun.
The x kinda bothered me anyway.

If r is now our distance,
  hypotenuse we find.
And the theta’s an inverse tan,
 our slope we’ve reassigned.
To convert these points right back, trig will be the key,
r cos theta, and sine too, but stay with degrees, you’ll see--

Polar plot, polar plot!
Radians can be used as well,
Polar plot, polar plot,
This circle’s magic spell!

Cardioid. Spiral. 
Graph them upon arrival.
Roots with, a minus. See math that’s oh, so timeless.
So much you can show!!

POLAR PLOT!

SPIRAL! POLAR PLOT!
