Wolfram's interactive demonstration Exploring Polar Graphs plots polar graphs of the form for various trig functions . What effects do the parameters , , , and have on the graph?
Wolfram's interactive demonstration Polygon Spirals creates spirals by connecting vertices of regular polygons which lie on the sides of larger, similar polygons.
