Graphing Polar Coordinates with your FEET. Move and Learn!

This video demonstrates students plotting polar coordinates by actually moving their feet. It's just another way to move and learn. When you physically plot the point with your feet it cements the process in your mind. Use blue masking tape on the ground and plot some points with your students. It's as easy as that. 

The students are plotting the point (3, 150 degrees) on the ground.  They found out another way to plot it was (3, -210 degrees)

I would you encourage you to buy some blue tape and plot ANY type of point or graph with FEET!  You will be amazed at the retention that your students will have.
